Well I bought this sewing machine and didn't know how to use it at all!! Yes, I remember when I was about 12 and my mom trying to show me how to sew on a machine.. I was too busy playing with my friends and getting into all sorts of trouble to pay attention in those days. So I'm sewing challenged!! LOL.. Thanks to a DVD disc that came with the sewing machine after many hours I learned how to thread the bobbin and put it in the bobbin thingamagigica! Then I learned how to thread the regular toppy thing. I played on some fabric and then went to paper. Oh boy that is when the hate/love relationship started with my machine. I practiced and practiced and jammed the machine up good at times. Asked Meredith many questions and finally after a month I have a card that's kinda sorta maybe worthwhile showing. ROFL!! It has some stitching on it!! wooo hoo! maybe next time I will even try the zig zag stitch. welllll, maybe not as I'm all over the place with that still!! LOL
Here is the card that I finally finished up with my sewing. LOL Not very straight but hey I did it that way on purpose. NOT!! LOL I know I should have sewed over the distress piece of paper but then there would have been another end to hide, I haven't figured out yet how to turn corners right!!!
The card is entered in a Challenge for the Blog Digital Tuesday. The theme this week was "All things girly"..
I used Prisma Color Pencils to color the image with odorless mineral spirits to blend.
Thanks all for looking at my poor sewing job. rofl maybe in about 5 years I will be able to sew a straight line!! lol
