Hi all! Hope you're enjoying your weekend? For a while now I have wanted a proper sewing machine for using on cards, but could not really justify the cost. I already have a tiny battery operated thing that just does a simple running stitch. But I've never really got on with it. It's manic...and I've never been able to do a straight line with it...ever!!
So when in Tesco's the other day, I spotted a little, but sturdy sewing machine for £59.99 that does 8 different stitches. Including 3 zig zag stitches...just what I wanted! I had been saving my Tesco club card reward vouchers for some time, and had taken £30's worth of them shopping with me, as they have the double up offer on at the moment on certain departments, including small domestic appliances. So yes, I doubled up my £30 vouchers and got myself a sewing machine!!
So here are the results of my first play. I obviously need more practice but am thrilled with the results. It's a really fab machine. Just the right size... I'm sooo happy!!
I have used one of my new Gorjuss Girl stamps, that you can get at Quixotic Paperie.
I also used;
Leone Em ash branch punch,
Go Kreate ovals and scalloped ovals,
Paula Pascaul punchable tag stamps,
Lili Of The Valley sentiment,
Sweet Stampin's challenge for 'try something new'....my sewing machine!!
Southern Girls...green & blue
My Mum's Craft Shop....flowers
I think I'll have another play with my new toy later!
Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments.
Have a wonderful long weekend!
