Down Memory Lane...Stitching







I have a great friend that sews beautifully on every layout. Nice and straight and it looks like it belongs there. I am always in awe at crops or retreats when she pulls out her sewing machine and creates awesome layouts.
On the other hand I do not sew straight, or much of anything else straight for that matter, but I do love the way it looks on layouts. I don't sew on layouts much, just too lazy to get the machine out, or if it is out, to change the color of the thread.
Here are a few that I have sewn on, and once done, I do like the effect.

Love the idea of sharing the different techniques you have used. It is inspiring to see and try. I haven't pulled out the machine but between arrows and stitches, I may just have to do some layouts! Keep these ideas comin!

I don't remember the first one with the bling. Gorgeous! Did you know that you can use clear thread for the bobbin? For me then, it's just a matter of choosing spool of thread. I still have to dig my sewing machine out of the closet, though.
