How To Use An Embroidery Machine To Embellish Your Scrapbooks

SE-400] Sewing and Embroidery Machine to embellish your pages.
You can create a unique three-dimensional style for your scrapbooks simply by adding some embroidery to your pages. The embroidery stitches can even have a purpose beyond decorative by securing other elements to the page at the same time as creating the design. In addition, the embroidery thread itself adds color, texture, and depth to your design.
Here are some fun ideas for projects:

  • Embroider titles of pages and photos using the monogramming feature
  • Embroider the corners of the binder for a unique photo album look
  • Embellish the pages with frames and borders in all sorts of designs. I particularly like the old Italian styles from Florence.
  • Sprinkle all sorts of fun and cute little designs over the pages.

Techniques For Using An Embroidery Machine For Scrapbooking

  • Use coordinating fabric for the background of the entire page.
  • Add an embroidered Christmas or other special message with the date
  • Embroider a frame for the photos using one of the built-in frame patterns
  1. Use the trial feature in your embroidery machine to test out the size of the shape that you have chosen. Sew out with a straight stitch for the initial frame pattern. Sew out the shape of the frame (note the size of the frame that you have sewn out.)
  2. Cut out the center of the frame fabric along the straight stitching, while the fabric is still in the hoop.
  3. Use the Back button to select a decorative frame in the same size, proceed to embroider.
  4. Place the photo behind the embroidered frame.

How To Sew and Embroider on Paper
The techniques for sewing on paper are basically the same as sewing on fabric with a couple of important adjustments.

  • Be sure that you have enough thread in the bobbin. Paper, unlike fabric, will have permanent holes that show if you sew without thread.
  • Instead of tying off the thread ends or back-stitching, use a dab of glue or a small amount of clear tape to adhere the loose threads to the back of the work.

Embroidering and sewing is an easy and fun way to add interest and design to your scrapbooks. You can use any type of paper and thread to get just the look you want. You can sew papers together or simply embroider to embellish. If you want to add embroidery designs to your pages, you can find many different designs on the Internet for free downloading.
