New Home - A Stitchy Make by Barbara McNaughton

Itching to take on a stitchy project after visiting the amazing Festival of Quilts show recently, I was delighted when my daughter asked me to make a card for a friend who is moving house, as this presented the perfect opportunity.  
This new home card combines sewing and cardmaking skills, but could just as easily be adapted to make a small cushion, bag panel or quilt block instead. 

What I used: ·A4 sheet of plain paper ·Pencil ·Ruler ·Bondaweb ·Iron and ironing board ·Scissors ·Fabric scraps ·Embroidery thread ·Hand sewing needle ·Assorted colours of cardstock for layering ·8x8 card blank
1. To start – measure out and draw a square the size that you would like your finished project to be. I chose a square 6 inches by 6 inches.
