Sew Pretty

Do you sew on your scrapbook pages? Oh you should!! It's such a nice touch. I love sewing on my pages. I love the look - it's just SEW unique. And it doesn't need to be perfect - the randomness becomes a perfect pattern.



You can sew with a sewing machine and frame your pictures or your page like I did in my So Cool layout:

Or as a design detail like Lindsey did in her A Few of My Favorite Things layout:


Or hand stitch a border like Stacey did with this whipped running stitch in her New Home layout:

Or follow a pattern or stamp with handstitching like Jayne did in her February layout:

You can see all the sewing elements are just fantastic! Hopefully these four very different layouts will inspire you try sewing on your pages today.
