I decided I wanted to use it because of its unique texture, and when I went to sew the edges, it took the thread like fabric - it's quite flexible. And then when I inked over it, I was delighted to see the fun texture. And it was a moment where I just thought: thank you, Grandma. :)
The stamp comes from Loralie Designs. I just think it's the cutest thing! There are actually two sewing machines in the set and both are equally amazing. This stitching is sort of my "thing" that I like to do. I use two different colors of thread (one on the bobbin and the other threaded through the machine) and then make sure I stitch off the edge of the paper a bit. That makes the bottom thread show through, so if you take a closer look, you'll see the tan and black threads. The messier the better with this technique!
Thanks for taking a peek :
