Hello again everyone.
When I was Christmas shopping, I popped into the QVC outlet store, and found one of the We Are Memory Keepers Sew Easy tool kits for £1.99 (wow! real bargain, as I nearly bought it when I saw it originally - it was about £20). It is a kind of paper piercer with different heads (straight, criss cross, scallop and flower), plus a piercing mat and some coloured threads. After I bought it, I read some poor reviews about it on the QVC website and, because of that and everything that happened just before Christmas, I didn't give it a go until a couple of nights ago. And I am so pleased with it (though I don't really think it is worth the full money!).
I used it on a notebook I covered - I sewed scallops across the corners of the papers and across the panel in the centre under the image. I fastened the panels with the sewn corners on the cover, then opened the book, and realised I'd covered the back by accident (oops!), so then had to do some more sewing for the front cover. Lucky I realised before I added the rest of the elements (LOL!).
The image is from Whiff of Joy and the papers are Kay & Co, again - sorry, and I have two more to do! Here's a close up of the stitching on the middle panel.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - Anything goes
Creative Inspirations - Something new - new tool used
Creative Cowgirls - Something new - new tool used
That's it me thinks. Need to colour up some more images to cover the other two notebooks. Hope to see you again soon.
Love, Andrea xx
