Description

Not sure what category this goes into.  It is strip pieced, embroidered and embellished, and I guess decorative.

I saw this idea online recently (I think it was here?) and decided to make a quick card for my sister in law's birthday.  I sewed directly onto blank card-stock with narrow strips in my scrap box.  Then I wrote her name in disappearing ink.  I threaded perle cotton into my Elna sewing machine, and left regular all purpose thread in the bobbin.  I covered the feed dogs, took off the presser foot, lowered the foot bar and free hand stitched over the name.  Then I hand sewed on a little floral embellishment.

I glued a solid piece of card stock to the inside cover of the card to cover stitch lines.

I almost hate to give it away!
