Trendy Technique with Practical Scrappers!

Good day! Today at Practical Scrappers we are talking about machine sewing on layouts. For those of you who follow me regularly, you know I sew on almost ALL my layouts. I love the rough, messy look and I love the straight edges and zig zags. But for this challenge I wanted to try something new!

About a year ago, I invested in a sewing machine that did lots and lots of different stitches. For this design, I chose a leaf and vine pattern.
I fussy cut Basic Grey's Out of Print flowers and curled their edges with a pencil for added dimension.

I hope you'll stop by and see all the projects at Practical Scrappers. Did you know they have design calls every day? and challenges every week? It's a great place to inspire and be inspired! I'd love to see you there.

Until then, keep doing what you love to do!
