Spoonful of Sugar and CCT

Let me start by saying the inside had not been decorated because I am not sure about this card.
I take my hat off to all you girls that sew on your card it is not easy!!
I have used the sketch on spoonful of sugar and CCT was to use something new, I had a mini sewing machine for Christmas but it is years since I have used one and I didn't find it easy any tips from you pros out there will be very much appreciated.
So here it is but I don't think I will be using it this will just be a trial run.



Light box was ordered today so may try and take some better pictures of the past few cards when it arrives.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

Don't you DARE give up on it!!
THere's nothing wrong with the sewing. It's fine Sue. You may want to ajust the tension a tad if anything, but that's all. If this is your go at it, then you did better than me, 'coz my first one went in the bin! LOL I just practiced with scraps 'till I got some confidence going and 'went for it'. I sewed that slow, my foot couldn't control the pedal. Ha Ha. When I get to a corner, I stop, keep the needle in the card and turn the card round and carry on.
LOVE your card!!!
