Handmade Monday 105

For those of you who follow me on twitter and Facebook, you may have noticed a recent plethora of handmade cards on my feeds. I have developed maybe a slightly unhealthy obsession with making cards using free motion embroidery! I think I like doing them because they’re so quick to do and you can have so many different dseigns, plus it uses up all those scraps of fabric I have managed acquire!

Here are some of the designs I have done

I have also experimented using different fabrics and my fabric ink and stamps to get different looks

I still have so many ideas I want to try, need to see if these sell first though!

I can’t quite believe where this week has gone, time flies when you’re having fun! Over to handmade Harbour and the rest of the Handmade Monday posts now!

  1. Such gorgeous cards! My absolute favs are the butterfly and the car stamp but they are all gorgeous πŸ™‚ i think the texture of fabric on a card is so appealing x

  2. I noticed your designs popping up on facebook. They are rather lovely and I’m sure they should sell really well πŸ™‚

  3. I love your cards Sarah. I think they’ll sell (my favourite is the cute bee but I think the butterfly will be the most popular!). I have been thinking I should do a few machine stitched cards (a great way of using up scraps) but whether I’ll get round to it is another matter altogether!

  4. The cards are gorgeous! I have never tried free motion embroidery but understand it can be very addictive!! I love the VW Beetle card (I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with all things VW!) Simmi x

  5. I have enjoyed seeing them pop up on Facebook and particularly like the bee and ladybird (for obvious reasons). I am very tempted by free machine embroidery and will be giving it a go sometime in the future I think! x

  6. I really like your cards, they’re very clear and simple to see and enjoy. The butterfly and ladybird are my favourites. I like the idea of stamping onto fabric too, I’m going to be starting a fabric collage / quilt project with my Headway group soon and its an idea its worth exploring with them if they want to add specific pictures to their individual squares.
