Sewing is one of my FAVORITE techniques to do on a LO! So I challenge you this month to use sewing on a page or pages. You can do it by machine or hand, but no faux stitching. That means NO digital or doodled stitching.

*Twist* Since it's Spring, I thought we'd do some nesting. For an extra vote at the end of the month use at least 3 different fibers (twine, rope, yarn, etc.) in addition to your stitching. Your fibers don't need to be stitched!

Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 4/1/13, and you have until 4/30 to enter.
2)It can be any size,paper only, 2 pager,a card, and/or a mini album.
3)Link LO to this thread and please enable public embedding.
4)If you get love please return the favor
5)LO can be used in other challenges here or on other sites.
6)1 entry per person.

To do PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

To link LO's:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on the 'link/embed' words.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

No need to sign up. At the end of the month PM me with your top 3 LO's and include your own #. Then I'll do a poll where we can vote for a winner.

Happy Boy ~ BOAF April Kit By DreaSlee

Here's one:

Clyde's Thank You card By Klweist

The white outlining is, of course, doodled, but the pink swirl was handsewn. I feel like it gets lost in the bold pocket and flowers. Maybe I should have used more strands of the floss.

Drea, this one was just for sharing. If I had more time, I would have sewn where the doodles are but I needed to send the card to work with DH today. Thanks for asking.

Thanks Becky!
