Learning to love my sewing machine...


The-latest-buzz

It's confession time. Any machine stitching you saw on my projects prior to Christmas 2013 was done by someone else [hangs head in shame]...I went with the "free rider" approach. If my mother or sister was sewing something, I'll just swing by with my layout...."Could you just do a row right over here?"



The reason is pretty simple actually. I HATE threading the machine. It drives me CRAZY! *LOL*


So now I'm learning to love my sewing machine...*winks* 


Just a layout about a fun morning walk with the niece and nephew.



Playing along with the mood board at Inkido and Scrapfriends.

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE this! The sewing looks great with the fun mix and the journaling is so attractive here. FABULOUS lo!

That's so funny! I wish I had someone else in the house sewing so that I could just stick my layout in there every once in a while. I hate getting out the machine, hate threading it, and hate the fact that I almost instantly mess up the project I was trying to sew!

Lisa said...

This is gorgeous!! And the stitching looks amazing!! I need to learn to love my sewing machine more...my lines always turn out wonky and I end up wasting so much paper!! Love this!! Have a great day :)

I agree, theres nothing that frustrates me more then when my sewing machine jams and I have to figure it out, I get so frustrated!!!!! And then to spend time on a card and have it ruined....not so good, that's way you will see very few cards with sewing on them! I love the look though! Your page turned out so cute!!!!

Karon said...

Fabulous LO and love the stitching around the photos - great papers too! TFS

Ashley Horton said...

Your page and the stitching are awesome, Yvonne!! I really need to get a sewing machine one of these days!!

Mitra Pratt said...

WAIT! There is nothing wrong with the first method of conning someone who is already sewing into helping a little, is there? I hate threading the darn thing too....love this layout! Super pretty colors!

Denise van Deventer said...

Audrey Pettit said...

Yay for embracing your sewing machine! This is really adorable, and your fun stitching adds so much fabulous detail. Love the paper you used and the masking, too. And that title just makes me smile!

Did you know they actually sell machines that thread the needles themselves?! That's my next one!

HAHA that is too cute! Good approach too to get someone else to stitch. I have no room for my machine in my studio so setting it up is a pain, hence little stitching on show :) Thanks for playing along with us at INKIDO!!
