The challenge on the Sassy Cheryl blog this week is to make stitches, real or faux ones. Mine are of the faux variety since I haven't figured out how to use my sewing machine yet! My parents are coming up for a visit this weekend and if we have time I will see if she can give me some pointers. I used the Sassy Cheryl image Button Flowers Bag and colored it with Copic Markers. She has a couple of more of these that are similar with buttons. I really love buttons. I keep buying them too, almost every time I go into a craft store I leave with some buttons. Anyway, I just think these images are too cute. Since I am sewing machine challenged, I had to draw in my little stitches around the border of my card. One day I will learn to sew!
I did buy a machine a couple of months ago and a great book on teaching yourself how to sew. Yeah, I still don't know how to sew. I can do basic things by hand; like sewing on buttons, fixing a loose hem, that type of thing. I was fortunate enough to have my Great Grandmother for the first sixteen years of my life and she taught me to quilt by hand. So I have pieced quilts and actually quilted with needle and thread but am lost when it comes to using the machine. It is going to be a crazy busy weekend. I have my 5K in the morning, am teaching a Copic class right after that and then have my parents here for the weekend and will be taking Mom out to celebrate her birthday. If we have a spare minute or two I am going to see if she can at least get me started!
