"stitch n pick"




Ok.. so I have been doing a little stitch and pick these days... which gives us another texture to add to our scrapping pages.... so next time you stitch it .... pick it too!
Here's how I go about it... I actually stitch the same lines 3 times so I have lots more thread to pick at...I use a strip of sellotape on the back, so the stitching doesn't all come out in on pick!.......... to easy - now its your turn..... Mwah!

I'm loving the stitch and pick thing - thanks for sharing how to do it too, cos I would've ended up with a row of holes!!!

Will have to go try before you come up with another awesome technique

Have tried this before but it never seems to work, even with the tape behind. GRRRRRR
