Hey everyone, hope you are doing well today, I am loving this overcast weather!!
So boogie is all sewn up, just need the ends sewn in.
Voila!!! Although I am inclined to think that the shoulder edges are a bit wide/stickyoutty, that isn't a pattern problem, its a 'clothing doesn't like my dimensions' problem. Other than that I am loving my first ever homemade clothing item!!!! Any ideas on how to fix the sticky outty sleave holes?
I also have my next cross stitch project ready to start. Its the expression 'irony is not dead' from the subversive cross stitch book. How cool is that green stuff? The lady at the craft shop only had that or black. I might go for the black stuff next time. My mum has already claimed this. If this embroidery thing works out, I'll definitely be making more subversive stuff.
And for the people who think they have every pattern / stitch guide they could ever need, I say 'no you don't have everything you need!' Why? Well BOOKFEST is coming to town! Seriously last year I found some AMAZING vintage patterns, not to mention the wackiest macrame books I have ever seen (so I need to return those to lifeline lol) but for $60 you will basically be carrying twice your own weight in books. Its a win-win situation for everyone! Its on for about a week, but the best stuff is there on the first day, so I will see you at 8am on the dot for some bookloving/pattern madness!!! Oh and those green bags are perfect for this!!
