Don't Forget, a Finished Gift, and a Poinsettia Pin for Christmas
Are you gifting hand-sewn goodies this year? I'm always so excited to wrap up the little things I sew, I often *almost* forget to go back over them and trim off all of the strings and loose threads and whatnot!
So, here's a Merry Christmas reminder from me to you: Trim, trim!
It's all in the details, doncha know?
I finished up that baby doll clothes gift last night. Here's the set:
(sorry about the grainy pics, my house is lacking in natural light!)
I had a bit of trouble with the little white top. I think the instructions could have been done better. For any sewing newbies who think patterns are overwhelming, I can't blame you! I have been sewing most of my life, and I often knit my brow in consternation at sewing patterns. Though, maybe I should actually read them instead of wandering off like I do?
Anyway, I thought it might be fun to wrap each piece individually. More to open, right?
On another note, I didn't get a new outfit for Christmas Mass this year, but I wanted something fun and red...
That's it for this post.
