Hi all, today I have a new card to share. I made this card for Some Odd Girl "stitching" challenge that starts today. I hope you will check them out and play along with us.
Now, sewing is not my strongest skill, although I did made one quilt when I first learn to sew. Yeah, I just jumped right in and went with big project. :) That was pretty much my first and last sewing project. When it comes to card, I haven't have the best of luck sewing using sewing machine.
So, it comes down to hand stitching then. For this card, I hand draw the grass followed by hand stitching.
What do you think of my handmade grass? For me personally, I don't think it's too shabby. My first try with this card was actually hand stitch a border, but then it bugged me to no end that it's not super straight. After a couple nights of staring at it, I decided to re-do the card. Trim the stitched border and made the grass and I think it looks much better.
As always, you know SOG gals has some fabulous inspirations for this challenge. Check them out at SOME ODD GIRL. Today, hubby and I should be hitting Santa Barbara and on the last day of our vacation. :) Thanks so much for stopping by.
