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 use frankenstein stitches.

Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 10/1/13, and you have until 10/31/13 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.

Welcome ladies! A frankenstein stitch is basically a straight stitch but with varying smaller stitches placed randomly over it. It can be little lines, or x's and your lines don't even have to be straight. It's a fun, fool proof stitch to do by hand if you've never tried before. Here's an old example of mine with frankenstein stitches along the right. I used the INstitchz (silly stiches) on this page, but I think I'm going to do my own for my example.

Not sure I'll get to Frankenstein stitches, but they do look cool.

Here are some sweet little XXX "kiss" stitches.

Amy I'll count those as frankenstein stitches, since they are little x's. If you want to swap it out later that's fine too.
