This was something I decided to try after I had the sewing machine out to mend a few of my husbands shirts tonight. I took a blank card and sewed freely using a zig zag stitch and two different colors in the bobbin and the top thread. I had to increase the tension to 7 on my machine to get the thing to sew through index card thickness.
I was really experimenting and playing around. As I continued it sort of started to look like something sort of recognizable...then I decided to continue the whole sewing theme idea and I just glued snaps in for the flower centers. I noticed if the card is about 3 feet away from me, it looks really good...but close up you can see the childish nature of it, and pure silliness. I had a lot of fun seeing what would happen with sewing, but will probably never do it again, simply due to the fact that I hate machine sewing. If anything, I may try one by hand, and I would have so much more control, it might actually turn out to look like something nice!
