Sewing on paper is easier than I thought it would be. I’ve recently tried both machine sewing and hand stitching/embroidery on paper and both work. In both cases, I recommend using thick paper (although I used regular computer paper in my sewing machine and it worked fine).
As I learn more about sewing on paper, I will add it to this page.
Here’s a sample of my recent sewing on paper. I tried using different stitches on my machine.
Tools for Sewing on Paper
Machine sewing on paper: obviously, you need a sewing machine. I’m quite happy with my Brother CS6000i.
- Hand sewing on paper: needle and thread. You can also use a sharp tool like a bulletin board pin to poke holes in your page before you embroider. If you do, you will want to use something under you paper, like an old book or a cutting mat. If you are doing cross-stitch on paper, you may want to use grid paper to make the holes on the paper.
- Paper: thicker paper is better
