All Sewn Up Card (Sharon Jeffs, Former DT Member)

All Sewn Up Card
by Sharon Jeffs

For a while it was a big thing to add ribbon to projects.  There was ribbon available everywhere and it all different sizes, colours and pattern.  I bought heaps of it with the he intention of using it all ... and never did!  Like a lot of other crafters, I have tonnes of ribbon and have decided to try to find new and different ways to use it up.

When I first saw the Heart die, I immediately wanted to have a go at creating a ribbon heart to kind of give homage that country feel.

One of the great things about this die set is that the large heart cuts out a solid heart but also an outline of the heart.  I used the solid part as my guide by adhering strips of ribbon over its surface, leaving the ends.  I then used my sewing machine to sew all of the ribbons together using a zigzag stitch and then adding the outline part of the die over the top to re-define the heart shape.

Pretty simple really but I love the final effect, especially since I've managed to use up some more of my ribbon supplies!
