Creating Your Own Stitched Stationary

Item 1/1

[slideshow]

I got a new sewing machine recently and took it out today to play around a bit. I didn’t have much fabric so I decided to stitch on paper instead. And in the process, I came up with a couple of fun ideas for stationary designs.



Do-It-Yourself:

  1. Either cut your own paper to size, or buy a A7 sized card and A4 sized card from your local paper store.
  2. Stitch the smaller card into the middle of the larger card
  3. Cut hearts from construction paper. I used the 1st grade method of folding the paper and cutting half-hearts along the fold.
  4. Sew the hearts together.
  5. Reinforce your strand of sewn hearts to the corners of your card.
  6. Write a note, and you’re done!

In the spirit of fall, I also decided to try my hand at making a stitched pumpkin. The stitching worked well for the curves running down the round sides. Oh, and I also used the 1st grade method of cutting shapes again for this guy - hey, I’m all about simplicity when trying to make things symmetrical.



This project took less than 15 minutes and was really easy. I highly recommend it if you have your own sewing machine. What other designs could you make?
