To add a bit of dimension to rather plain papers sewing is great.
For my sewing I like to use templates since it makes it easier to see what the result will be. This template is from Bazzill, but you can easily make your own on a piece of transparency.
I put the template on the paper and undeeath I put a thick soft mat.
Then I stick holes through the paper where my stitches will be.
A close-up. Here you see the created holes.
This is what it looks like when I have made all the sewing holes.
Time to make the actual stitching.
Here is the finished swirls.
And here is my layout using the November kits.
Good luck!November 9, 2011 at 7:16 pm #142945

Beautiful LO, and what a sweet picture! I'm trying to get into the habit of sewing on my LOs. Are there other stencils you particularly like? Do you always do your stitchwork first, or do you sometimes use it to fill in gaps? TFS!November 10, 2011 at 12:19 am #142952
Gorgeous LO, Camilla! I have some of those Bazzill templates and have never used them. Time to dig them out and play! Thanks for the tutorial!November 10, 2011 at 12:47 am #142953

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."November 11, 2011 at 1:22 pm #142957

I find it easier to do the stitching first – I have way to many embellishments on my layouts to make them easy handling… LOL
I have made my own stencils in the past. Using the Prima swirls as a model (printing) is great.
