Saturday JUGS Challenge #15

Here we are another week done and another awesome JUGS challenge! This week we have a technique challenge for you and it is to add some stitching to your project. Pull out the sewing machine and get ready. OK, so you don't have to use a machine I didn't you can hand stitch or even faux stitch. Whatever floats your boat!
So I don't have a sewing machine. I do have a crafty handheld machine that I have never figure out yet! I've never used a sewing machine so I have no idea how to get it threaded and make it actually stitch! Yes I'm probably a ding dong or maybe this handheld machine is a ding dong. Anyhow, I decided to do some hand stitching on one of my layers. Here is what I came up with:

The pattern papers that I used are by Daisy Bucket and that adorable bear image is by Treehouse Stamps. Did you hear that the Treehouse has gone digital? YEP! There are currently a few sets available in digital format with more to come on Jan 14 and this is a sneaky peek at what is yet to come.


Be sure to swing by the Jugs DT to check out all the amazing creations this week:

What an adorable card Maria! You may not know how to operate an electrical sewing machine but you sure worked magic with your needle & thread! Your handstitching with the blue embroidery floss looks fabulous! Thank you so much for such an awesome sample of hand stitching for this week's challenge!
