Creating Your Own Stitched Stationary
Posted In: Living | Posted By: Brit
I got a new sewing machine recently and took it out today to play around a bit. I didn’t have much fabric so I decided to stitch on paper instead. And in the process, I came up with a couple of fun ideas for stationary designs.
- Either cut your own paper to size, or buy a A7 sized card and A4 sized card from your local paper store.
- Stitch the smaller card into the middle of the larger card
- Cut hearts from construction paper. I used the 1st grade method of folding the paper and cutting half-hearts along the fold.
- Sew the hearts together.
- Reinforce your strand of sewn hearts to the corners of your card.
- Write a note, and you’re done!
In the spirit of fall, I also decided to try my hand at making a stitched pumpkin. The stitching worked well for the curves running down the round sides. Oh, and I also used the 1st grade method of cutting shapes again for this guy - hey, I’m all about simplicity when trying to make things symmetrical.
This project took less than 15 minutes and was really easy. I highly recommend it if you have your own sewing machine. What other designs could you make?
