Okay, so now on to the stamp set I chose to create with: In Stitches. I LOVE this set. I made a card and a gift. My card uses PaperTrey Ink paper and white ink.
This is my favorite. As soon as I saw the stamp set, I knew I wanted to do some embroidery project with it. Here are the instructions:
1. Stamp on flannel fabric with a light grey ink.
2. Layer the fabric onto cotton batting and stitch (embroider) over the grey stamped image.
3. Color leaves and flower with Copic markers and sew on button
4. Cut backing fabric the same size and front
5. Cut ribbon "handle" and pin to the inside
6. Stitch around all 4 sides leaving enough room at the bottom to turn inside out
7. Trim corners and turn right side out
8. Lightly stuff with fiberfil cotton
9. Sew shut
10. Stitch ribbon bows.
**The word "friend" is not part of the stamp set. I drew that on lightly with a pencil.
This is the set that I am giving away. Please leave a comment to enter to win. I will draw a name Friday the 8th around 6 pm CST.
