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* For an extra vote at the end of the month add beads to your stitching.

Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 9/1/13, and you have until 9/30/13 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.

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.

My Examples without the twist:

If it makes it any easier, you don't have to stitch your beads on, just apply beads with glue to your stitching in some way.

I don't know why I don't do this challenge more often - sewing is one of my favorite techniques, and I love to add beads, too!

The title is outlined in stitching, and the beads are stitched as well.

So sorry, Drea. I got a new job and the kids went back to school and it was harder for me to re-adjust than I expected. I have been a SAHM for 5 years and loved it! But, the student loans are calling my name. It was definitely NOT the beading, I love that idea. I still want to use it in the future.

Kelly I sooo understand. My new temp job is kicking my butt and I am feeling so unorganized at home.
