free sewing tutorial: stitched cards
When I put the effort into making or carefully choosing just the right card to send, I find that my words and handwriting mirror that thoughtfulness. I just pay a bit more attention: my writing setup, the perfect writing instrument, and the time to be intentional. When all of these things are cared for, the experience feels so satisfying. Connecting with a friend while connecting to myself – it is time well spent.
This project is more a guide than a tutorial. Sometimes it helps to have a little inspiration to get started and then the ideas start flowing. All it takes is a pile of threads, some fabric scraps, a glue stick, and your paper of choice. For the designs on the cards pictured, I was feeling inspired by the Quilts of Gee’s Bend (look them up if you are unfamiliar, they are magnificent).
There are two ways to access the pattern: you can add it to your shopping cart, and once you complete the check-out process (no credit card required) the tutorial will automatically be emailed to you. OR you can click the image above to view and/or download the PDF file straight from this page.
Need felt or fabric? I have the same felt that I use in my studio for sale in bundles and grab bags here and you can find plant-dyed fabric bundles and remnants here.
I'd love to see your creations! It would make me so happy if you shared them... please tag @katagolda on Instagram.
