Basic Supplies

Directions

STEP 1

  • Cut 8-1/2”x5-1/2” cardstock panel.

STEP 2

  • Cut 4-1/2”x2” burlap strip and 4-1/2” length of lace.

STEP 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”.

STEP 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.)

STEP 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.)

STEP 6

  • Remove card from machine. Trim thread tails.

STEP 7

  • Fold cardstock in half to make 4-1/4”x 5-1/2” side-fold card.

STEP 8

  • Adhere buttons to burlap as shown.
