The Highs and Lows of a Fashionista and Craftster Wannabe

I Give Up

It just beat me down.  I’d never done pleats before and struggled with THAT.  I really needed to mark symbols and tried it but they disappeared!  (Maybe too much time between sewing sessions?)  I’d never put in a zipper before and attempted it and thought I did a B to C grade job until I tried to apply interfacing and realized I’d put the zipper in way TOO high and it wouldn’t accommodate the facings.

Sometimes, things just have to be shelved.  I have learned that just because a pattern is labeled EASY doesn’t mean that it’s for beginners.  And that’s what I am—a beginner.  And really, when you’re homeschooling, housecleaning, etc, etc, being a beginner may last a little longer than what you’d like.  Okay.  Lesson learned.

SO…………I am working on a new blanket for my mom.  (Pictures later.)  AND……I’ve decided to try something simpler and smaller.

Top right will be made up (WILL be made up) in pale green $1 a yard Walmart fabric.  Certainly, I shouldn’t be too disappointed no matter what the outcome.  WISH ME LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
