Stamp to Stitching Tutorial- Practical Scrapper Bev


Some of us have stencils for marking and piercing but today I'll show you how to take any stamped image and apply the piercings from it to a layout for design to stitch.
We are going to take a layout and apply a stamped flourish which will be sewn with embroidery floss and added beads.
Here is my layout in unfinished state.

ISOLATE the area you'd like to stitch on.


THEN using a stamp design, mark it on the white paper.



PLACE this white paper on top of the layout , it will give you get the proper placement to pierce the design.


PIERCE only the sections you prefer.. your choice.




STITCHING from one point to the other leaves a space between each stitch which is fine.. just up and down.
When at the other end work your way back now through the missed stitches.. really easy.
NOTE: if you like to add beads .. do this as you get to the spot you want beaded.
Here is a CLOSE UP of stitching.

AND here is my finished layout.


Now get out those stamps that have great design for stitching...Can't wait to see what you make.
SURE HOPE YOU LIKE IT.

I am so in love with this idea I might try it tonight. Unfortunately I am a little low on stamps, and don't have any fancy flourishes like that... but I could always print on off the computer and do the same :)
