My third go at sewing: Embellishments

I’m having more and more fun using my sewing machine.

This time I tried making some embellishments to put in journals.  I sewed coffee-dyed paper onto the back of these lovely images from two of Artymaze’s digital kits.

I also sewed some lace onto some of them and tried different types of stitching.

Definitely going to be doing more. Love them!

Here’s a video where I go through them:

Happy Mail

Happy mail from Sweden

So excited to receive this happy mail from Sweden.

I especially love the mini junk journal. It’s the first junk journal I’ve received that someone else has made. So special.

I also love the sewed items. I love the use of sewing in junk journals and would love to give it a go. Only problem is I’d have to learn how to sew and I’m not sure about buying sewing machine, especially if I’m no good at sewing.

Something to think about as I continue my junk journal adventures.
