Sticky Back Canvas Postcards and Sewing Machine Fail

Evening all….:-)

Tonight up in the workshop I had a bit of an epic fail with the sewing machine and I cannae fix it lol… the underneath bit gets all gathered up with thread and ends up looking like a birds nest…. now either that sewing machine needs help or I do lol

So here is what I started out making when I first went up there… you can see on the left hand side of the envelope where the sewing machine threw a flaky and bombed out on me ;-)

So I gave up, stuck the machine back on the shelf and went onto Ustream and had a wee natter with all my lovely wee crafty friends.. it was good tonight as they all cheered me up after I came home from work with s stonking sore head and the broo’s doon ;-)

Sam got her plaster cast off her leg today so that was a bit of good news, she’s well on the road to being mobile once again :-)

I made a couple of postcards too.. a pink one and then a “joycie special” lavender and grey one…

I had printed out some digital collage sheets at the weekend onto Sticky Backed Canvas and used some of these within the postcards made this evening

  • Accucut Diecut from my friend Deb.. I absolutely love this diecut shape, perfect for these wee postcards that I absolutely love making.

  1. They are so pretty! I think you should print them. OR, you could send me the pretty purple on for my birthday, tomorrow! (Still trying to find that accucut die for you.) Enjoying my -15 degrees temp with a cup of chocolate! :)

  2. Hi Sarah, looked for you on ustream at the weekend, not to mention a couple of times during the week, but you weren’t on at the time. Lovely cards – love the effect of printing onto canvas – and all the elements, as usual, are gorgeous. With ref to your sewing machine, it is possible that the tension on your bobbin case needs adjusting … it may have jiggled loose during use and now needs tightening up a little bit. Hope this helps.
