I always remind myself it is not the finished product, but the journey along the way....and I have learnt. Oh, yes, a 'make up as you go' pattern and the pic of a finished product in mind and...well, this it it (in 5 pics or less).
Prerequisite fuzzy slippers....
Putting studs in...notice the stuff up?
And lots of labels!
Ok, so I have learnt:
Lots of layers mean domestic sewing machines DO crack the shits occasionally.
Lots of pics before hand will remind you of how it's meant to look at the end.
Always check to recipient likes animal print (Bam-Bam!).
Make sure there is enough fabric for the matching top.
Plan for babysitting the weekend you want to finish this.
Relax and enjoy it! Remember the old one? Could I do worse?
It is back to it's owner this arvo, looking forward to her response!
Edit: She loved it! Now onto the hood.
