the day my sewing machine got REAL mad…

I have been waiting years for my sewing machine to get angry with me, because I’m always sewing paper. Truth is, I’m not sure it’s ever seen fabric!? Long story short, it got REAL mad at me while making this card last night. Luckily, it didn’t go as awry as I thought it would. However, I’m not entirely pleased with its behavioral outcome either. Oh well…sometimes you just gotta roll. 😉

The AEI♥U Challenge this month is a Non-White Card Base!! Well, Kraft is like peanut butter to my jelly, so I went straight there. Haaaa!

Here’s my card…

    I love how you overlapped the rounded diamonds and colored them, so cool! Boo for touchy sewing machines, but it looks really cool!

    Your sewing machine wasn’t mad….just annoyed. If you want a perfect stitch make sure the top thread is in the tension guides and that the bottom thread in the bobbin is correctly threaded in the bobbin case. (I owned a sewing machine store in my ex-life.) Then your stitches will be more even. But you probably know all this. But I really really like the look you achieved. It would be hard to duplicate.
