I made a video for you. It is long and boring, but you can watch it if you like. I describe how I got the bust dart OUT and all the fullness IN the front.
I could answer that question real good now, lol.
Anyway, I cut an entire width of the fabric into a giant rectangle. I sewed the sides and ends together and turned it. THEN I decided it needed some fringe on the ends. I thought those little balls they have in the fringe department of Hancock's would be so cute. SO, I drove 3 miles to Hancock's. I went in and immediately found the little ball fringe. I drove 3 miles back home.
I got home and spent the next hour figuring out how much ball fringe to use and how to apply it.
Finally, I got it all done.
It was a MAJOR disappointment. When I tied it around my neck, it creeped up into a tight loop, and it looked like I had just left the Emergency Room after having my neck tied onto my head.
The little balls looked like King Kong's eyelashes had fallen off and somehow attached themselves to the end of my scarf.
I cut King Kong's eyelashes off, so I had to pin them back on to show you this picture.
The scarf is now residing in the trash along with KK's eyelashes.
This fabric doesn't make a pretty scarf like the one I had on the other day.
I will probably make another top tomorrow because these types of tops are SO COMFORTABLE. I want to find a knit in my stash this time, and MAYBE do an embroidery design on it.
I have all week to entertain myself, so I might as well try to be creative.
I bought a new Craftsy class last night.
Something about "One Blouse - Many Looks".
The instructor is a pretty young girl that looks young enough to be my granddaughter. I can't imagine how she could know all that she knows at such a young age. It has taken Phylly and I FOREVER to learn what we know, and we have so much more to learn.
That's all for today. Check back tomorrow. You never know what I'll make next.
How could you? I don't even know myself!
