Sewing seems to be a long-forgotten skill…many of us would like to know how to do it but it’s so much easier to just go the shop and get what we want (hopefully). One of our Crew members also wishes she was able to sew but instead, Linda Simpson shares with you a card inspired by the 7Gypsies Gypsy Seamstress Collection.
‘I love anything to do with haberdashery, even though I can’t sew! My first project had to be something that used the wonderful haberdashery papers from Canvas Corp and 7 Gypsies. I wanted to incorporate the wonderful Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and the Pure Mistable Papers into the project. I therefore decided on making a greetings card. Once the basis of the card was created it all came together, and lots of space to add a greeting at a later date.’ -Linda Simpson
