Sew Sweet Frame

Hi crafters!  I know we have a lot of crafters out there that just love to sew! This frame is for you!  The Sew Sweet Frame is a themed frame that can be used to make really quick cards or you can use bits of the frame by easily nipping them apart too.  Shown here, I have sort of paper pieced it to create this card.  I just love how the spools look so cute with Bakers twine wrapped around them!  If you would be interested in getting your name in this drawing, just leave a comment on this post.  Don't forget you can use the Pinit button to add any of the cards or dies to your Pinterest boards for later inspiration too.  I will be back with the second post today at noon, don't forget to drop back by the blog to see what's in store!  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue and all
What a fabulous card for our sewing friends and family. Love the snipability of it too, just like all of your frames Sue, so versatile and can be made so personal

Morning. How I wish I was a natural home maker I can just about sew a hem up unless any material needs cutting away then it goes to the professional (especially curtains) so I admire any of you that can sew just about anything, what a fantastic die frame for those that have this skill, it would have been the perfect frame to use on my MIL's card if we'd not lost her 3yrs ago she could turn her hand to anything and bridal gowns were her forte for those that didn't have the finances for a 'designer' bought gown. Loving it Sue xxx

Robin Sachs said...

Hi Sue!
Love the card. Perfect for friends who sew.!

Donita Naylor said...

The way you put the colors together gives it the look of a patchwork quilt. Probably intentional, eh? Quick of me to catch on!

I do admire people who can make whatever they like from fabric, or draw whatever they like on paper.

We’re all necessary in the mix.

Best,
Donita in Rhode Island

Morning Sue.
Thank you, I love these frame cards,so quick to make for the charity shop,

Take care Kitty Davies.

Maria Illsley said...

The frame cards are perfect for quick cards or you can dress them up or snip into them to make them completely different. A great card Sue xx

Pauline Austen said...

Morning Sue, this is a perfect frame for my sisters who love to sew. I love the way in which you can snip the individual parts to either use them individually (as I like making exploding boxes) or for a 3d frame. Great start to a new day. Hugs xx Pauline in S.A.

Perfect card for a sewist. I am rubbish at sewing and admire people who can conjure up fantastic things out of fabric. Love how you have made the card using the different parts in separate colours

Hello Sue
Another useful frame I have to admit when I saw this in preview I was confused I couldn't understand what a pumpkin was doing on a sewing frame I now see it's a pin cushion I need to change my glasses

BridgetCG said...

Hello Sue, a really lovely card. Your Frame design dies are just fabulous, because they can be used in so many ways. This one is no exception, I can see it being very popular. Have a good day everyone. Bx

Good Morning Sue and all
I have to say what a stunning frame , I have a few friends what like to stitch and I could see The Sew Sweet frame coming in very handy. I would be wanting to add some buttons on the frame. I love how you have hated twine to cotton reels and adding colour paper piecing.

Marie P.from Longridge said...

Good morning Sue. This one punched me in the heart as it reminded me so much of my Mum. She has been gone for over 40 years and was a superb dressmaker. I did not follow in her footsteps and I'd better stop right here or I'll be telling stories instead of commenting (sorry Sue)
I just love the die and the card you have made with it.
Thank you.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a very clever die with loads of snipability potential and I have several friends who would love this. My sewing these days is pretty much limited to taking up hems and sewing on buttons but I do knit and crochet so will you be making a die for all the knitters out there?
