Choose a colour that will go with your design


On a piece of paper, draw, paint or decorate in anyway that you want. The design should be smaller than your card.

Even simple pictures will look great once the card is complete


Set the sewing machine to the zig zag setting and use a contrasting colour of thread so that it shows up when you stitch.

Glue your design on the card to hold it in place.

Glue your design anywhere you want on the card, you could even try having several pieces on one card


Using the sewing machine, sew around all four sides. You might want to practise on some scrap paper first until you get the hang of it.

If you're not confident about what to draw or paint, you could always try using a stamp. Potato prints are easy to do or you could try using a rubber stamp.
