Step 1
Down­load the print­able sewing card tem­plate (down­load here: Betty Bouf­fantHazel BobIda BraidsSey­mour Spike). Print the tem­plate of your choice using the 8.5 x 11-inch cream or white card stock. I went with cream card stock with a lit­tle texture.

Cut out the tem­plate cards along the dot­ted line. Fin­ished cards will be 5 in. x 7 in.

Step 3
Take the blunt nee­dle and care­fully punch the white dots in each hair-do. Choose your embroi­dery thread–I went with con­trast­ing col­ors so the thread would pop over the illustrations.
