It's Sew Easy-Papercraft Sewing Tool

Updated on January 12, 2014

Professional scrapbook artist, paper crafter, and author, I have taught people how to make family memories into legacies for 20 years.

I love to add special touches to my paper craft projects. When I saw a technique that used sewing stitches on greeting cards, scrapbook pages and other paper craft projects, I was really excited. Although, I don't consider myself an expert seamstress, I can hand sew and do some embroidery, as well as cross stitch, so I could see the potential for this technique. The problem was, that I did not want to purchase a large sewing machine. Though I have a small craft sewing machine, I did not want to change bobbins every time I did a project, or take the time to set up the machine.

So, when I found the Sew Easy, I was really excited with this tool. The system is uses a rotary paper piercer that places the holes in the exact spacing to make it easy for you to do hand sewing on cardstock paper. It is meant only to be used on paper-not on fabric !

The heads are interchangeable. This means that I can do many different types of paper stitching with just a change of the head. There are 15 interchangeable heads, with all kinds of combinations of stitches. The tool makes it easy to change stitching patterns in seconds, so you can use multiple patterns on a single project.You can use floss, very thin ribbon, twine or heavy thread to complete your pattern.

I love this kit because it is an complete with everything you need to get started. You get the tool itself as well as 4 interchangeable heads. You get some floss as well as the cutting mat itself. The only additional tool that you will need is a blunt sewing needle, which most of us have in our sewing baskets, or you can use the needles made for this system.

So, where do I use this tool? I use it on scrapbook pages ! It can be used with titles, around pictures and on journal cards. It can be used as a border in your layouts.

In greeting cards, you can use the stitching pattern anywhere in your design. Think card edges or ways to highlight features on your designs.

In paper crafts, your choices are endless. Think about banners, in home decor, wedding decor, birthday dacor and more.
