I've been busily making Christmas postcards this past week or so. Once they have reached their destinations, I will show you what I've been making. We wouldn't want to spoil the surprise, would we?
But I can show you a little trick I tried with the edgings. I have this cool little Bernina foot with a teeny hole in the piece in front of the needle. You can see I have threaded something through it in this photo.
By simply stitching a zigzag stitch, I attached two rounds of the Light Effects thread to the edge of each postcard. You can see some of the sparkle here, although they look much more festive in 'real' life!
I used a heavier thread in the bobbin, so the back of the card looks neat, too.
Isn't Christmas about pretty things and shining lights?
