Make a project using Stitching- It doesn't have to be real, you can use fake, draw, piercing, templates- anything. Finally something to go with Sew Many Cards (thanks to Donna for suggesting it).
The first stitches I did was the yellow flowers. I used a Bazzill stitches pattern (my only Bazzill item - I hear the cardstock is great but I wouldn't know since I have never seen any locally). I chose DCWV glitter cardstock, poked the holes, then used 4 strands of yellow embroidery floss to sew the pattern. Then I took the image of Halen with Hat. Colored the body with colored pencils over a piece of texture card stock to give it a fabric look. Used my AtYou Specia glitter markers on the hat and beads. Then I mounted Halen on yellow DCWV cardstock and used 3 strands of blue embroidery floss to whip a blanket stitch around the circle.
