I think I mentioned a while back that I'm making a friend a dress for Christmas, as that's what she asked for. So I finally got all the materials together and have started it. Here's part of the bodice, with its lovely grey ribbon:
No major catastrophes (so far), but I basically have to do every step twice because my brain keeps wandering off.
Case in point:
I made the same bodice front twice. Luckily I figured it out before attaching the ribbon to the second one because that would've left holes in my ribbon!
See, proof that it's fixed now:
Unfortunately one mistake hasn't sufficed. I've made several others...and I'm afraid I might have left permanent holes in part of the fabric. But hopefully it'll all turn out right in the end! I need to finish it by this coming Thursday. Send me good sewing karma please! :)
I have managed to complete another Christmas embroidery project though.
Here's the Tree of Love:
And here's another project limping along:
Picnik is currently offering a free holiday greeting card option with their usual services and I couldn't resist.
I hope everyone is humming along with the holiday crafting!
