Pinhole edging

by Arlene Phillips
(United kingdom)

I liked the pinhole edging I saw on some cards, but when I realized I had to buy a special ruler and painstakingly prick at intervals I decided to have a think.


I came up with the idea of buying at just over £2.00 a tailor's tracing wheel, using that with your scoreboard and a little practice first, you can create an acceptable pinhole edge at a fraction of the cost.

You can also remove the thread from your sewing machine, set your stitch length, then "stitch" where you want the holes.

Great Idea. One of things that you wonder why you didn't think of it yourself. Well done.

Pinhole edging

Good morning Arlene

I use this very same method and still do just to create an effect on my cards. By not pressing too hard I create an embossed look.

I used it mostly when I did embroidery on cards
