22  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Sewn Cards. Tut for transferring pattern to card. on: February 22, 2011 05:43:28 AM
This is the kind of card you are doing:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=373369.0

Ok, so transferring a pattern to a card is very simple.
You will need;
♥ your card
♥ your pattern
♥ a sewing needle
♥ something soft to put underneath your card
♥ Paper clips


Ok so first if you don't have a card, you can easily make one from a piece card (you can use paper but card is better for when you're sewing your pattern)
Fold your A4 piece of card  into 3 sections. I have cut off some of the bottom because I though it looked a little too long




Then you take your pattern and put it onto the middle section of the card and secure it with the paper clips




Then you place your 'something soft' (Ive just used a folded tea towel, but you can use thick felt or anything else you think would work) underneath your card and use your needle to make the holes where the pattern says.
I just use a normal sewing needle but my neighbour uses one of those knife kits with all the different blades? she takes out the blades and replaces them with a needle. That way she has a handle (it does make it much easier) BUT for those who don't have a knife kit thing and don't want to buy one, I got a great tip to put the needle into a cork and to use that as a handle Cheesy All I need now is the cork Tongue




When you think you've finished, hold your card up to the light to make sure you haven't missed any holes. If you have just poke them Tongue




And all you need to do now is do your pattern! Cheesy easy-peasy
(Don't stress if you think you wont be able to do the pattern. When you get them from the site the come with very detailed instructions Smiley )





I thought I would add just one more thing.
When you sew your pattern, DO NOT TIE KNOTS AT THE BACK WITH THE THREAD. It's not quite the same as sewing. All you do instead is tape the piece of thread down with some tape (As shown). Also, the reason for the 3 sections instead of the normal 2 is so you can fold the extra one over the back of the sewing and stick it down with double sided tape. That way no one will ever know Tongue

Yea I was thinking of doing the big 5 Smiley I was lucky enough in 2009 to go to south Africa with my boyfriend and his family Cheesy we were charged by an elephant :p unfortunately though we didn't get a chance to any lions in the wild, only in the reserves. Still amazing though

The elephant is stitched with fine gold sewing thread called "antique gold" it's very beautiful but I kind of paid out of my 'you know where' for it \... But you could probably just get the same if not similar effect with normal gold thread (I get most of my normal threads from a cheapo store for like $4AUD)
