A Mojo Card & A Sewing Project

Monday, March 30, 2009

Hello!  Here is my card for both Mojo Monday and Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge.  Such a cute color combo.  I know it is hard to read the sentiment, it says "I made a wish and you came true".  Just one of the many sentiments in the Wonderful Wishes stamp set from Verve Stamps.  

I mentioned Friday that I had a little sewing project going on.  Well, I wanted to make a pouch to hold my Kindle.  It game with a faux leather/suede cover, but my kindle wouldn't stay put inside.  Anyway, I purchased this little sewing machine from Walmart, bought a yard of fabric and went to town.  Even though the sewing machine left a lot to be desired, I did manage to complete the pouch before returning it to Walmart the next day.  I would definitely not recommend this machine.  About every four or five inches the thread would break and I would have to re-thread the machine.  Very frustrating.  
The button is just for looks.  It is a 'mother of pearl' type button that is hard to see in the picture.  
I also made my daughter a little matching change purse.  Hope you all are having a good start to your week!

Love the card - I like how you've used designer paper rather than images, it really shows them off - great idea.
