I use my machine. Good thing I don't use material on it anymore. I've probably dulled the needle and ruined the tension. Now the thread gets all bunched up on the underside, but who cares? The effect on the right side is fine. I don't like sewing by hand.
My sewing machine and I do not get along. I stitch on LOs by hand. I either use a paper piercer to make the holes first or the cutterbee piercing bugs. The cutter bee bugs are more effective if you do not want precisely straight lines and are only going through one piece of paper. I usually use embroidery floss, just because it seems to show up better than regular thread. HTH!
Ok thanks!!! I don't have a sewing machine right now so I guess I will stick to hand right now until I get one. I just got a Cricut for Christmas so one machine at a time!!! I can ask for one for my birthday this summer!!!
Ok thanks!! I am going to look for them this week!! That will be great!! I like doing things by hand more anyways so that is great. Very helpful!! I have always loved the technique just need a more satisfying way to do it!!
