FAUX SEWING

NO, I DON'T KNOW THE FIRST THING ABOUT SEWING! I HAVE 2 MACHINES PLUS A MINI CRAFT ONE AND CAN'T THREAD IT OR SEW IN A STRAIGHT LINE! BUT I LOVE THE LOOK OF STITCHING ON LAYOUTS, CARDS, ETC. SO I HAVE LEARNED TO FAUX SEW. THIS VIDEO SHOWS SEVERAL WAYS TO ACHIEVE THE SEWN LOOK WITHOUT SEWING AND I EVEN ATTEMPT TO DEMONSTRATE ON MY SEW CRAFTY MINI BY PROVO CRAFT. THE VIDEO ALSO SHOWS HOW TO EMBOSS WITH PIGMENT INKS, AS SOME PEOPLE HAVE WANTED ME TO DO A VIDEO ON EMBOSSING. THE ITEMS DIDN'T COME OUT THE BEST, BUT HOPEFULLY YOU WILL GET THE IDEA... SEE, I CAN'T EVEN FAUX SEW! LOL!

ENJOY!

LOVE LOVE LOVE. You did a fabulous job once again, girlfriend! I love the look of stitching on my pages but I'm so lazy to put forth that extra effort to drag out the sewing maching(even though mine stays out on the sewing table all the time, just a few feet from my scrap table lol). The one you showed where you drew the lines and then poked the holes... FABULOUS! Looks just like stitching. I love it! Thanks so much for sharing once again with us!
