Top Tip Tuesday - All stitched up

This weeks Challenge was a challenge for me to lol!
The Lovely Anne is our Hostess.

The Challenge this week is All Stitched Up.
so we want to see stitching on your projects, it can be faux or real but I have had a go at using my machine to stitch a few times and not done a great job!
Think its like anything needs practice!

Don't forget its maximum 3 entries each,
And please spare us Dt's a thought and turn off word verification! pretty please.
We have 2 Sponsors

Here is my little card: using a limited runs image
I have had a bit of a fight with this card as I stitched the whole card But..... It was really good practice and I even managed to fix a pair of trousers that were to long in the same sitting at the sewing machine, lol! Think I could get into this....

My Tip!
when you have finised sewing you can put the threads on the back of your work and a little loop will appear if you pull the little loop you can pull both threads to the back.

I have also made a plastic milk bottle flower and you can see the tutorial for that Here

I was going to do a little picture to show you but my PC srashed big style, I have been having trouble with it for sometime and my husband keeps putting it right but this time it had a right paddy and through everything out!
Anyway my lovely husband had bought me a new pc!
so I am on that but I have not got the printer working or my camera..... So I will add a picture asap for you!
Can't wait to see what you all make this time :0)

So head over to the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge
