Sew It!

Good morning & welcome on the Saturday morning, I hope your are all well...those that need a hug, help yourself I have lots to give away today lol! xx

Today I am here to share my latest DT creation for My Time To Craft, where for the next fortnight the theme is....


real or faux!
I decided to do some actual sewing on my card. Nige did buy me one of those mini sewing machines, but I couldn't get it to go through my card....so I ended up sewing it by hand. Thankfully I have a ruler with pokey holes in, so I used that to make the holes & then used them for my thread.
