Julia over on Belle Papier has an excellent tutorial explaining how to use a sewing machine to sew paper to paper. This practice is popular among those of us who make greeting cards, but it could be a fantastic way to fabricate an art piece.
Some of Julia’s suggestions:
- If you don’t have an electronic sewing machine automatically corrects tension, check your tension on a scrap piece of paper, and adjust as necessary.
- Don’t try to sew more than 3 pieces of cardstock together.
- Use just a bit of adhesive to hold your papers together while sewing.
- Consider freestyle stitching, which is great for the beginner.
