For those you love
So I made this card for Valentine's Day. I made the tutorial and then I forgot all about it! Oops! I hope you'll forgive me. But you can make a card like this for any occasion and I think it's great for moms, dads, boyfriends, grandparents- you'd be hard to find someone who wouldn't appreciate this.

  • How to make a stitched card. Fabric Card - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start by picking out your front and back fabric. I chose white on the inside and black for the outside. Cut them to equal size (I measured mine based off of the size of a DVD cover). Press your fabric. Fold in half and press again so you have a center fold.

    To finish your card you can do 1 of 2 things. You can pin the right sides of fabric together, sew around it and leave an opening to turn out and then top stitch. Or you can do like I did and pin the wrong sides of fabric together and sew around it so you have a rougher look.
