Sewing Techniques by Clare
Created by Clare-SSC Design Team 
Visit us atwww.simplyscrapping.ning.com First, whenever I sew, I only use two types of stitches - plain
and zigzag.Both are fun, neither being harder than the other.Now, whenever I stitch, I'm not stitching for adhesive purposes; it's purely decorative. In the first card, Itook my already decorated pink paper, then sewed around it for the border. I did not sew the pinkpaper to my cardstock. The reason being, when you open the card, you'll be able to see the stitching,and you don't want that...well, at least, I don't want that. :)In the second card, my stitching is on the carstock and chipboard; 'wait a minute', you might bethinking, 'I thought you just said not to sew the paper onto the carstock?!' Well, in this case, I had onlytwo choices; sew on the card base, or take another piece of white cardstock, just enough to cover thebase, sew the decorated paper on that, and THEN stick that on the base. Pretty confusing, eh? Let's just put it simply; if you have to stitch on the base, then make sure you put a piece of paper (computerwill do fine) or dark vellum inside of the card, covering up the stitching.So, now that I've got those two things cleared up, the instructions shall commence...For zig-zag and plain stitching
 Step 1. Take the paper whose border you want to sew...and then take a ruler and pencil, and lightly draw lines where you want to sew.
Moving on to the sewing machine...
 Step 2. Your sewing machines paddle should look like this...that space in the middle of the clear plastic of the paddle is what you will use to guide you, along withthe lines made on your paper.Step 3. With the line on your paper matched up with middle space of the paddle, being sewing. Don'tbe afraid to take your time! If you go a little off, just lift the paddle, slip the paper out, take the stitchesout, and try again.
Tip! When you're reaching the end of the line, slow down so you don't over sew.Tip! When zigzag stitching, once you reach the end of the line, pull the paper out and cut thethread. Then, slipping the paper back underneath the paddle, this time facing the perpendicularline, use the machine to overlap your last stitch (beginning a whole new line, the first stitch ofthis line starting where the last one left off), then complete that line.
 Step 4. Slip your paper out from underneath the paddle when you have finished everything (i.e. all fourlines if sewing a quadrilateral).
Notice the lines that you drew with the pencil...Step 5. Erase the lines,and tie the ends of each corner together on the
of the paper you're sewing, like so...
