Tuesday Tip With Aimee:


Hello I’m Aimee and this is my very first post for Chic Tags! I am so super excited to be here today! If any of you already know me, you know I travel A LOT! I was so excited when Veronica introduced the RoadTrip line. I cannot tell you how many times this has been my go to line.





So my Tuesday Tip is:
When your sewing machine isn’t cooperating, fix your layout with a faux stitch.




As you can see in my photos, when I was sewing across the top the thread kept breaking! {my tension was off or something like that} My first fix was to cover the back with some washi tape, so the tread didn’t pull trough. Then I was kinda upset about all the extra holes from the needle. I decided I would outline everything with a white and a black pen. I really think it draws attention away from my boo boo.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I love how simple this page is- I often struggle with choosing the right details and end up throwing everything intoa oage making it look cluttered- this is really elegant.
