Secret Sewing

Happy Wednesday Bloglanders

I hope you are having a wonderful week!

As promised, a pic of Goudmyn (GOUD=gold; MYN= mine) near Robertson (Western Cape, Sunny South Africa) where we've been camping this past weekend.

And now for my post on SECRET SEWING.

If you follow my Instagram feed, you would have seen it by now but if you haven't, I'm here today to explain how to do it.

I print all my comments on a 6x4 sheet. In "Word" adding a table and filling up the spaces with what I will need as well as some extras for future use. Now start stitching.

The GREAT thing about this is that even if you don't have a sewing machine, you can ask a friend to help you out or do a stack when visiting your mom or aunt who does have one stashed away somewhere.

I use all my "scrap" thread for these. You will see that I've used orange on top and pink at the bottom and halfway through my project, I had to replace the bottom thread - now that one is yellow. I like the IMPERFECTNESS.

I also like that the stitching doesn't go all through to the back page. No need to cover up unseemly threads.

Now start cutting them apart.

All that's left is to glue your stitched titles onto your projects. Keep what's left in a mini storage bin - they will come in handy in future projects. I use them on my PL spreads, PL cards, mini books. layouts and in my planner.

And ............ meet my SECRET SEWING mini book:

I will put some more SECRET SEWING projects up on my blog throughout the week.Just check back and all will be revealed.

That's it - I'm off to have some crafting FUN. Have a wonderful day and please come back to play.
