Sewing Challenge

The following cards were made for the Sewing challenge on http://www.stamptv.com/ (Use sewing on your project -- either real or faux stitching OR a sewing THEMED project)

The focal image is digital (can't find the link for it!!) and the oval was paper pierced and then threaded with embroidery thread and needle.
The DP was from a paper pad from Trim Craft in "Desert Bloom" (6x6). For more design options see: http://www.scrap-a-doodles.co.za/categories/Collections/Trim-Craft/?sort=newest
I imported the image into Microsoft Powerpoint and added the sentiment. The sentiments for all the sewing cards I found here:  http://www.quotegarden.com/needlework.html

For my fellow "Joburgers", the designer paper was bought at Le Papier (located at Benmore Gardens centre near Sandton, South Africa). http://www.paperworld.co.za/index.php?/Paperworld-Le-Papier-du-Nord
The image was again imported into MS Powerpoint and the sentiment added.
Once again the oval was pierced and then threaded with embroidery thread.

This darling Granny is actually an image from a coloring page: http://www.printactivities.com/ColoringPages/family/grandma-quilt.html
The pink dotted paper is also from Le Papier (see link above)

I imported the image into MS Powerpoint and added the sentiment. I reprinted the image onto pink colored paper. I cut out only the quilt part and paper pieced it to the original black and white image.
See GinaK's technique video on paper piecing (not pieRcing :D):

To add interest I threaded a scrap piece of fabric and pulled the thread to create the "waves" (what on earth would one call this in proper sewing terms I wonder). 3 buttons sewed on with embroidery thread and knotted completed the image.
