I needed a birthday card and just refused to pay $5-$10 for a card from the Market or Drug Store. So, I decide to make my own card using fabric and my sewing machine
Of course, I had to consult my personal library the World Wide Webvia Google. I, actually, found many good posts and blogs about the subject.
I decide to make my card like a string quilt on fondation. My foundation was piece was a piece of tear-a-way stablizer along with an used store bought card as my template.
I sewed strings of fabric to the stablizer and then glued the stabilize to card stock and then zig-zag along the edges on to the card stock and card.....Bing-Bang-Bong!!
By the way, the scraps of fabric are re-cyled fabrics......Really --Cool
