Sew Cute at Paper Issues

Whoa, it's October. When did that happen?!
Even though I decided to leave the design team over there at Paper Issues, I still plan on linking up projects to their challenges when I can.
The theme right now is "You're Sew Cute, You Keep Me in Stitches." Here are a few older projects that I am going to try and link up.
Definitely an older page. I can't even remember when I made it, but I know I still had a Studio Calico kit subscription at the time and I stopped subbing in 2010. This definitely makes me think of sewing. Anything with fashion does.
Another older page from my Studio Calico subbing days. I can't remember if I have ever linked this page up before or shared it here. Something tells me I have, but anyway it fits the theme with the hand stitched butterfly trail and little stitches on butterflies and heart button.

Button with stitching on this page. But I think I may have linked this one up before as well.
I know I shared this page about the "favorite things" trade I did with some of my on-line friends. The fabric heart and twine qualify this page. :)
And this project has buttons. Plus it's one of my favorites :)

So just a few pages for the new link up which goes on from now until Oct. 12th.
I am currently working on a page but it doesn't quite fit the challenge.
Hoping to find a little time after that page to work on a new project using one of my sewing templates.
We'll see! :)


  1. Fantastic selection of layouts, Mary Jo, I hadn't seen a couple of them before! Love the doors and buttons on the last one, so creative! :)

  2. Loveeeeeeee these!!!!!! I remember that Sassafras line on your 2nd page ... it was one of my faves of theirs!!!!!
