My sweet friend Lisa and I are the hostesses this month, and we have a FUN challenge for you! Designed around one of the things that we both love to do best!
Stitch It Up!
Wow us with your stitching this month for the Guest Designer contest....you can use hand sewing, machine sewing, faux stitching or adding sewn embellishments. We'll be looking for really clever ways to add handmade charm to your projects this month, be creative with any type of stitching in your work this month.
Now, if you don't have a sewing machine, that's totally fine, there are so may ways to add hand or faux stitched details to your project too! We'll be looking for the most clever and charming entry to win our hearts - and of course, to win the upcoming release too!
You'll find all the entry details on THIS thread on the MFT Member Company Forum.
So with that challenge in mind are you ready to see my sample? I used the sweet Pure Innocence: Don't Open Until (currently out of stock - sorry!) for my sample, and colored with Copics for her face, but used my Prismacolor Pencils for the image. I added cross stitch detail to my panels, and to adhere my Die-namics Hearts A Plenty die (part of our last VIP Kit and available as part of our December 1st release!)
I love adding a mix of both hand and machine stitching to my projects, I think it lends such a sweet charm. I also love any sort of *extra* that you can add to your Die-namics to personalize your project....
To coordinate with my card, I added a mini tote created out of felted diecut squares. They've been machine stitched together and then I hand stitched on a handle from Twill Tape, buttons and of course, a stitched Die-namics Hearts a Plenty diecut.
Currently this tote is holding a Gift Card Sleeve, but don't you think a little girl would love filling this with hairbands, or tiny trinkets, or a few dollars to go shopping with mom?
I can't wait to see YOUR samples for the MFT Guest Designer Contest - What will you Stitch Up? I'm sure you will all AMAZE Lisa and I!
