Christmas Cards COMPLETED!

That title is misleading. My Christmas cards to sell on ebay are completed. I would have liked to do have done more, but as it was I was sneaking these in just in time to get them sold & sent out by Christmas. I've been "studying" cards on ebay to see what people like to buy. It seems if you put LOTS of detail on the card and sew all over it, then it is more likely to sell. I'd like to make some with less time consumed in making them to list on webstore. I've decided that stitching on cards is a bit more challenging than fabric in that every little micrometer you don't sew perfectly straight shows up. Also, I now have a cheap sewing machine that has just a handful of stitch options. They are meant to be functional, not beautiful, but I suppose to the non-seamstress they just look like variety! LOL! I think straight stitching & simple zigzag works better than the hem stitching (that's the one with a few straight stitches, then a V shaped stitch).

Next in the crafting world, I need to stuff some potscrubbers full of netting and get them mailed. I hope to work on some gifts for the girls' friends soon. THEN I might get to start my Christmas cards to send out! More likely, New Year's cards.

Hope you enjoy seeing these cards! If you are interested in purchasing these, my ebay username is benaphlag.
