Lou Lou Sew Crafty

Hi! Today is my day to share on the KaDoodle Bug Designs blog, so I decided to use the adorable "DS Lou Lou Sew Crafty" file. I am really loving the new digital images by Whimsical Inklings!

My sister is an avid sewer and quilter so I decided to make some projects for her. The "DS Lou Lou Sew Crafty" images were the perfect accents for my projects.

The svg for the sewing machine and cards is Parlor Patchwork from SVG Attic.  I must say that working with the sewing machine pattern in design space was very difficult, so I wouldn't recommend it to a novice. The tutorial from their site for it's assembly was very good though. The sewing machine was made 7 1/2 by 7 inches (excluding the spool holder). The digital image is 3 1/4 inches tall. I love how this sewing machine turned out! 

The thimble card was very easy to put together. I used a combination of glitter cardstock and pearlescent cardstock for the top layer. This card is 6 1/4 inches tall and the digital image is 4 1/2 inches tall. I used a scrap of ribbon to tie the layers together.

The tri-fold card was a quick, easy project. It measures 4 1/4 by 5 1/4 inches. The digital image is 3 3/4 inches tall. 

I printed my images on Spectrum Noir Cardstock by Crafters Companion. The images range in size from 3 1/4 inches to 4 1/2 inches. I used my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers to color all the images.
