Default Sewing on your cards

I thought it would be fun to start a thread about sewing on our cards. I just did one, and working on more.

This is mine..http://stampingwithangels.blogspot.c...-on-cards.html

Lets see what you all created

I bought a sewing machine last fall and still have not used it much. Thanks for all the great ideas. Now I need to get mine out and use it.

I love sewing on cards....once I started, I rarely can finish a card without some stitching somewhere on it!

Here is one of my favorites:

Do you mean you want to sew a button on the card with the machine?

That won't work with cardstock because the multiple stitches in one spot will quickly pull through and your button will fall off. Better to tie the thread on the button and then glue the button where you want it. Faster too!

Wow. You all have made such beautiful cards. I want to start stitching on cards and have a regular sewing machine. Do you use a special needle and what do you set your machine stitch per inch (like 12 etc.)? I guess I should just haul it out and practice. I was thinking of getting a small machine for just cards but am not sure if it would be good enough.
Help.

Here's my first attempt I did about a month ago:

Looked at everyone's cards that I could open (I'm at work and can't get to blogs); they are all gorgeous!

Here's a card where I used fabric.

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=22205

I made that card years ago and would make it differently now. I would lay the pink fabric down with a little sticky in the middle to keep it in place. Then I would try to zigzag around the pig.

I would use light weight fabrics for the most part.

For me I just have to jump in and start trying things. Many of them fail but some work!

Great idea for a thread! I love sewing on cards (I sew on each and every card; it's an obsession, LOL). I have a link list of some ways to sew on paper on my blog here, if anyone's curious:

That is the most amazing thing ever! I saw her pictures of how she does it, but there was no description, only pictures. I need supplies! Anyone know what kind of thread that is? And where I can get a piercing tool like that? I've been looking for a new one anyway, the one I have makes holes that are way too big.

Thanks

Although many people do stitch on their cards, it's not generally recommended for your sewing machine, especially if you have a computerized one. The tiny bits of paper from the holes can be very bad for the machine. Having a small, inexpensive one would seem to be the way to go.

I haven't personally tried it, but you could use Wonder Under (from the fabric store) to attach the fabric to the cardstock. The Wonder Under irons first to the fabric, you trace on your design (or stamp it?) then cut it out to the shape you want. I'm pretty sure a Nestie die would cut it too.
Then peel off the backing and iron it into place. It would be best to use a lightweight cloth over it so it won't burn the cardstock. You can cut very elaborate shapes using the wonder under, and it eliminates puckering and fraying of edges and makes a nice very flat shape. You can then sew around the edges if you like.

I just stitched the muslin straight down to the card but I think if you were cutting with nestablilities the fabric would lay nicer!

Here's a simple but favorite card of mine: http://allamericanstampers.blogspot....-sunshine.html

I have a great machine but rarely pull it out because there's just no room - so I bought a little hand held sewing machine from Kmart. It did that card beautifully but lately I've been having troubles with it - and I mean like 5 cards later!

Here are the messy results but I couldn't bare to throw away the card after everything was glued down. Lesson learned! http://allamericanstampers.blogspot....chers-fun

I've read that advice elsewhere, too, and have been afraid to risk my good machine. The Janome Sew Mini has worked out well for a second machine to dedicate to cardstock.

I haven't read the whole thread, but the Sew Mini is on sale again for $39.99 at Hancock Fabrics online. The free shipping is only on orders of $75 or more, though.

Hi Erin, She did mention the thread at the end of her post, I think she mentioned Gutterman and something else. She just said that she used a heavy thread that you would likely use for buttons. As for a piercer, For these smaller holes you could try a sewing pin, or with your regular piercer, don't try it over a thick pad where your piercer goes in deep, try it over smething harder.
Just my thoughts!!!

I didnt know this, I own an expensive computerized janome. Maybe I will need a second one. That mini is on sale.. I could use it just for my cards. Not a bad idea!

Hi Everyone,

I use Gutterman thread for bead crocheting. You can also use upholstery or polyester thread. I have seen these at JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby. I use a push pin to do my paper piercing.

I just ordered the little sewing machine that Gina K. used in her tutorials this morning. It was on sale. You can find the link on Stamp TV.

You're welcome.
