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

Twist: Red, White and/or Blue Stitching ~ For an extra vote at the end of the month, use red, white, and/or blue stitching on your project! Use at least 2 of these colors to qualify for the twist!

Rules:
1)Must be new as of 7/1/17, and you have until 7/31/17 to enter.
2)It can be any size, paper only, 2 pager, card, tag, ATC, 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 (unless there's less than 10 entries) and include your own #. Then I'll do a poll where we can vote for a winner.

Hi Drea. I've been busy today -- and it looks like I just finished one that fits!

Twist - thread is blue. 52 stitches in this happy little project! I'm really trying to get our Seattle vacation scrapped.

Fabulous stitching and design Pat! You need to use at least two colors though for the twist. If you get one done later, I can switch it out for you.

Lol! Sorry about that! I just want to make it more of a challenge with the two or more colors of stitching.

All three colors of stitching (although you have to really squint to see the white). I used white first and quickly realized it would not be seen. Then I used red right next to it and used blue for the "messed up" machine look.

Wow! Love how you did the twist Vivian!

Here's one from me without the twist. Just did a little machine stitching.

No twist as usual for me but I did a bunch of machine stitching which I don't think I have ever done before!

I can't believe this month is almost over! Sorry I didn't get the twist done, but I did combine black and white hand-stitching on this card for DH.

Hand-stitched the border around the star and all the little stitches on the embellies below the photos. (words cannot express how many times I stuck myself doing those Prima stars...)

Awesome page Sonja! Since there was less than 10 entries anyways the twist wouldn't have mattered. I'll have the poll up soon, but here's the August Sewing Challenge!
