Sewing Paper

I love to collage and place different images and colours together. It's restful for me and a great way to spend an evening.

Mostly I glue these, but every now and then I get my sewing machine out and sew the papers together and sew them into my journal.

It's very easy to sew paper and I think it looks really good.

I mostly use a zigzag stitch as this gives great patterns. I like to leave the threads loose too and that creates some movement.
I also have used this technique to make home made cards before. 50 Thank You cards for my wedding gifts was one.
Why not try sewing some paper together this weekend?
