You could also do the sewing on a separate piece of cardstock and then glue it onto a blank note-card.  That way, you get a lot more color.

Here's mine:

Awesome tute - I have been sewing cards myself and do the pattern a little differently. I usually find a picture online and trace it onto baking paper (if you press it against a monitor the static holds it there and you can easily see the picture) - I then trace the back of the picture so there's lead pencil on both sides. I do it thickly on the back and then place the piece over my card, and trace the top - tracing it thickly means the lead transfers on to the card when you trace over the top.
Usually I get a light outline that I can see easily but it easily erased - sometimes I've even started sewing before removing the lines and it didn't matter because the thread hid the lines.

I once made the mistake though, of holding the card slightly differently when piercing the holes and didn't notice my thumb was directly beneath the pattern and put the needle through the card and into my thumb - I recommend *not* doing that step hehe.

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
