sew up something, use a template, sewing machine or just needle and thread the old fashioned way...whatever way you choose we want to see the sewing skillz
Sometimes just a little hand stitching can make a big difference in a simple layout.
I am all thumbs when it comes to sewing.. but I actually hand sewed the stitches and cut the little chick from a template and some felt.
I've seen this done several places, using the sewing lines as a grid of sorts. So, I thought I'd give it a try. It didn't come out exactly as I had envisioned and covered up most of the grid. I intended to put little patterned paper scrap squares here and there inside the grid boxes. My layout is 8.5x11, so maybe it would have worked better with a 12x12. I also had to use the large pp strips to cover up my super 'bad' sewing skillz!
