Basic Supplies

scissors, ruler

Tools

  • VIVO™ by SINGER® Create & Repair Machine
  • Fabric adhesive

Directions

  • 1. Cut 8-1/2”x5-1/2” cardstock panel.
  • 2. Cut 4-1/2”x2” burlap strip and 4-1/2” length of lace.
  • 3. Position burlap on right edge of cardstock, 3/4” from bottom of cardstock. Tuck lace under top edge of burlap strip, overlapping by 1/2”.
  • 4. Set VIVO™ by SINGER® Create & Repair Machine for straight stitch. Thread top of machine and bobbin with all-purpose thread, in color that contrasts with burlap. Carefully stitch 1/4” from edge along all four sides of burlap. (Note: The more slowly the card is sewn, the more control you will have guiding the cardstock while stitching. The presser foot will help guide the cardstock evenly while stitching.)
  • 5. Backstitch at the beginning and end of the stitching to help secure the thread in place. (Note: Backstitching secures machine stitching so threads do not become loose and pull out. It is done by reversing a few stitches on top of or just next to those machine stitches at the beginning or end of a line of machine sewing.)
  • 6. Remove card from machine. Trim thread tails.
  • 7. Fold cardstock in half to make 4-1/4”x 5-1/2” side-fold card.
  • 8. Adhere buttons to burlap as shown.
