cards and envelopes

I've been playing with my sewing machine, making cards and envelopes:

This one is my favorite: a stitch sampler card.  While the machine has diagrams of what each stitch should look like, they are actually very different when actually sewn; and some of the uilitarian stitches are actually the most decorative.  I dabbed a small spot of glue on the ends of each line of stitches (inside the card) to keep them from unraveling.


  1. I LOVE them! You're a genius. I've always wondered what to do with those fancy stitch settings on the machine!

  2. Super fun! I really like the patterns.

  3. thanks!

    I'm very excited to use the fancy stitches, too! I'll sometimes also use them as decoration on a hem.
