SC185 Fabulous Flowers

I made this card for SC185 on SCS. I love this sketch. I actually sewed on a card with my sewing machine! I've had it for years, but I don't really know anything about them. Anyway, the last time I used it, which was probably a few years ago, the thread kept jamming underneath and I couldn't figure out why. So finally I pulled it out of the closet and starting messing around with settings. I think it was just the tension, lol. Now I can make some curtains! Or I should say TRY to make some curtains, lol. I'm really not very good at sewing, but are straight lines aren't that important, right :).

So pretty - your stitching is wonderful. Now go make some curtains. Sewing is all about trial and error. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes easier. Have fun!
