Thanks Sew Much

Up on the Practical Scrappers blog, there are several projects that focus on using sewing notions on your projects. I remember, back in the day, when I had home ec in 7th grade and was sooo excited to start sewing. My projects never turned out perfect, but I enjoyed the class. Later in high school, I took a year long sewing class and made some pretty cool things. We even had a fashion show with the items that we created and made.

Here is my sewing notions card. I used an old school Cosmo Cricket line that was focused on sewing:
 I dressed up my maniquin with some frilly trim to create a skirt:
I also added twine to the spool of thread and the needle:
And of course, I machine sewed on my card...

Hope you have a wonderful day!!!!
