Sewn Snow Shoes

Did you know there is a challenge over at A Vintage Journey called ‘All Sewn Up’? Well I had such great fun designing and making my fabric journal I decided to use some new stamps in another sewing project.

This Christmas card has the focal image stamped onto fabric which I then tried my hand at free sewing on the machine. Practice makes perfect but I am quite pleased with the effects.


Sorry I got so wrapped up in using the sewing machine using the fabric and corrugated card I completely forgot to take any process photos. I had dipped the fabric in some distress inks to get the grungy colour on the fabric. I used the same inks on the corrugated card. I stamped the snowshoes using Tim’s stamps and did all the sewing through both layers of fabric and corrugated card. I finished off with a black pen to add the finer details.


I hope the photos tell the story.


Some lace, a painted snowflake charm and an offcut of paper folded and tucked in completed the card.

I am hosting the All Sewn Up challenge so I would love to see you over there with a project.

Thanks for stopping by.
