A Stitch of Inspiration

I just stumbled into a good tutorial on machine sewing on paper. It was written by Julia Stainton, a mother of five and the apparent queen of paper crafts, on her blog Belle Papier {pretty paper}.

I made a Valentine this year with some stitching, but I hand-sewed it. I would have never imagined that I could have used the machine. I think I needed the entirety of the detailed tutorial, packed with basic sewing tips, to convince myself that sewing on paper might not damage my machine. But I think I will still wait until I have a needle too dull for fabric to attempt this.

I have an idea for a Christmas card that I will post when I make.
