Tutorial! Free style sewing for paper crafters

Have any of you wondered how on earth people sew in such detail on paper or fabric? I know I’ve tried and only come up with a mess.

Well, wonder no longer. It’s called freestyle sewing, and it’s easy as pie (once you know the simple trick, that is…).

The video shows paper, but you can do this on fabric, as well… just put your fabric in an embroidery hoop to keep everything tidy. Or hey – how about fabric and paper? With enough practice, you can even draw pictures in thread.

Share your attempts with us by uploading to our Flickr account (link in the sidebar to the left)!
