Cardstock + fabric scraps =

creative fun! June is a busy month for birthdays, at least for many of the loved ones in my life and the best reason for me to dive into my stash. ;o) I love making and giving handmade gifts. Although I'm still waiting for some handmade gifts to reach their new homes before sharing pics on my blog, I figured it's safe to show the cards I've made.

Finding a way to use even the tiniest scrap of pretty fabric always makes me happy and you know I love anything involving patchwork.

I'm also loving simple applique for cards. How about this bonus? I'm using machine needles that no longer are the best for fabric - extending their usefulness - by saving them for stitching on cardstock.


I'm seriously rethinking ever purchasing ready made cards again! I have plans to stitch a stash of scrappy fabric cards to have on hand for any occasion. More personal to give and a great way to get extra pleasure from pretty bits of fabric.
