Lotstodo Week 5 - In Stitches


I really struggled with this theme and I'm still not over the moon with what I've produced, but never mind. I punched holes around the outer edges and stitched my cord throught the holes. I got a new wizard die, which fits perfectly through the cuttlebug although you do need the tan embossing mats, and this die had 3 different buttons in the set. So I sewed my buttons onto the card and finished off by printing the saying 'a stitch in time saves nine' onto safmat and stuck it to my skinny.

I always find this theme difficult too but I think you've interpreted it well. The bg looks like fabric and I love those buttons, the wording's gone on really well too.
