Sew Sweet Birthday Card
by Mary Ruthven (Palm Coast, FL.)
A fun sew a card idea!
I know the best gifts I receive are handmade and when my
grandchildren make one for me, it's the best!
I send small handmade gifts to family and friends and try to come up
with a gift that relates to the person I am giving it to. A friend
who loves to sew has a birthday coming up.
I love hunting at garage sales and thrift stores...I find so many
neat little items there. Recently I found this pretty and unusual
pin cushion (new and still in original package) for 99 cents. It was
a perfect gift for her! I make my own greeting cards and came up
with this idea for her.
I knew when the card was completed that it would be adorable if a
child made it for someone they knew who liked to sew. A hand drawn
picture of a sewing machine would be a keepsake. I just roughly
stitched "Happy Birthday" onto a piece of material and then glued it
onto the machine at a position that made it look like the machine
I cut a small plastic spool in half (the ones that come in travel
sewing kits) and wrapped thread around it, then glued it on top of
the machine. I also glued buttons on each corner.
Inside I wrote the verse, "A day hemmed in prayer seldom unravels"
which a child can write in their own handwriting.
How cute would that be?
Just an idea I thought I'd share with other readers.
