which is purely a coincidence. i rearranged a little and set up my sewing machine and did some experiments. i've tried a few times in the past to sew on paper, but i was never very successful. i can sew on fabric, no problem...but i never could get anything to work out for me when it came to paper. but i set out to have patience, fiddle with the tension and do it until it worked. and i did.
when i was in college, studying theatre, my costume design and construction teacher told us to NEVER EFF WITH THE TENSION! well, you have to eff with the tension when you sew on paper. paper will break.
so, i sewed some cards with my new jolly by golly 12x12 paper kit (which i might love more than i love the 6x6 mini deck. i heart paper had the kits on sale the other day for an absolute steal, so i snapped one up. ) and some hero arts holiday greetings.
my pictures are hideous and inconsistent, i apologize...it's late and dark and even though i have 30-leven lamps pointed at my cards, they still look weird and vignette-y.
i even took the time to make a legend of some of the stitches my machine does, with the correct settings. i'm feelin' pretty good about myself right now.
