Seebee's Freebies Stitch Set 1



Here's another set with stitches. First, the 5 x 7 inch rounded corner stitch "frame" comes without a shadow; one was added to the contact sheet for visibility's sake. I also have 2 versions of the second stitch, the multi stitch. You can use the unshadowed version with your own shadowing, and I have also provided a version with shadows & highlights. I've included a page edge shadow, too. If you look at the contact sheet where the two papers meet, you'll see some shadowing & highlights that make little puckers around where the stitches hit. That is in the page shadow. (If you're not using the stitch to join two pieces of paper, you probably don't need it.) Just place the shadow below your paper layer and line it up with the stitching. I've left the opacity of that file up higher than it really should be, in order to help you place it. I definitely recommend lowering the opacity on it once you're happy with the placement.

I based that multi stitch on a very odd source: my cargo capri pants that are my favorite lounging pants. LOL! BTW, after making it and placing it on the contact sheet, it's my opinion that the stitch is a bit tall. When I tested squishing it down with the transform handles, it squished very nicely. :) The contact shows it unsquished, though.

Awesome! They look so real. And thank you for the page join shadow. You didn't have to include that, but it was so nice of you for those of us who still haven't quite gotten the hang of making ours look that real! LOL Thank you!

Excellent work, as always! I have not got a clue as to how to add shadows to stitching - any chance you could give a few pointers?
Thanks so much for the stitches!

I thought I would rather leave a comment here, because often I see some designers say they don't get to see all their comments as easy at the download link site... your stitches are wonderful - they will be a real treat to add to my layouts (when I get some time to make some, that is LOL!) Thanks for sharing your talent and time. Have a great day! Barb
