Here are a few tips:
- Do not stitch thru adhesive - either add adhesive to the sections you do not plan to stitch or stitch and then adhere the stitched piece to your project.
- Deb asked if you can stitch two pieces of cardstock together - sure! I have not done more than two layers though.
- Try some different stitches. I inherited by machine and it only does a straight stitch - I plan to get a new one so I can do zig zag and other stitches.
- One great thing about stitching on paper is you don't have to be exact. If I was sewing a dress I'd be nervous my true sewing skills would be evident and it would fall apart while I was wearing it. You are just sewing paper so you can be adventurous.
Here are a few projects I have stitched on:
