Fabric Scrap Cards

I've been making these fabric scrap cards for birthdays, after getting tired of spending money on store-bought cards and not always being in the mood to get out all my paper cardmaking supplies.  With a container of small fabric scraps and a stack of blank cards, they're fun to make!

I put an old needle in my sewing machine so that I'm not ruining a good one by stitching through the cardstock.  Any color thread works, too.

These pennants are one of my favorites.  It's really satisfying to use such tiny scraps and make something cute.
Before stitching around the scraps, it helps to use a little dab of a glue stick to hold them in place.

do you sew the scraps onto the card, or glue (etc) the scraps on after stitching? thanks! so cute

I secure them with a glue stick first so that they don't shift while stitching over them.

Wherre does the double-sided fusible come in to play - I don't see that in the tutorial.

I don't know what double-sided fusible you're referencing - I don't mention using it in this project, so that's why you don't see it. Perhaps you were looking at a different post and commented on the wrong one.
