VIDEO: How to Wow – Simple Stitching

Sep 7, 2017 | Encouragement Cards, Tutorials & Videos | 0 comments

I love stitching details on cards, don’t you? If you’re not the sewing type, or can’t be bothered with pulling out a machine, but would like to add a few stitches, today’s How to Wow is for you!

I really do love stitching details on cards. I don’t think it will ever go out of style! But, often, I struggle with the want, and the need to get out my sewing machine to add a few stitches. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

I will confess that I recently invested in one of those mini sewing machines. So, now I have one in my craft room that I can just pull out and stitch a line fairly quickly. But, sometimes you still want a thicker stitch, or a color that maybe you don’t have in thread. So, what’s a craft maven to do? I’ve got a simple approach that you’re going to love!

I was inspired by today’s new Tic Tac Toe Challenge board:

Play along at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge - Inspiring you 8-ways each week! Find us @tttchallenge or tictactoechallenge.com. New challenges every Thursday!

I went for the middle row – Dimension, Embellishment, Die-cut. I thought that I’d do up an adorable 3x3 note (my favorite size) to show off the versatility of a new bundle in the Holiday Catalog – Christmas Quilt.

Hopefully you spied the 3 or 4 little stitches I added to the quilt square. Using the die made it a breeze, but there’s other ways you can quickly add a few stitches, so, let’s take a look at the video to see!

Ready to stitch away? I hope so! Here’s some other tips about this mini beauty:

  • I wanted to show off the versatility of this stamp set beyond the holidays, so I reached for my Color Coordinator to come up with a great combo – Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand
  • Don’t be afraid to snip up your sentiments. The one I used was two lines that I broke up so they would look perfect on this little masterpiece
  • Add a paper frame – I cut an additional quilt square from Blushing Bride and rotated it a quarter turn so it would peek out behind the main square. It adds the perfect extra sumthin’ sumthin’!
