I like giving gifts. I especially like giving gifts that I have made. This is for a friend.
I was inspired by one in the Lotta Jansdotter book. I gave the directions a read, but made mine differently. The straps are longer on this one. I also lined it and added a pocket.
I am so pleased with the results. I think I am going to make some for teachers’ gifts. Gotta get on that – Kate is out next Wednesday and Jane is finished the following week. Yikes. Has it been a whole school year already?
I am working on the sun dress tutorial, but have been delayed a bit. This is partly due to the procrastinator in me. I started later than I had hoped. The other reason is that the fabric I am using right now has a white background. The elastic thread is white and so is my sewing table. All that white is making it hard to see the details in the photos. I am going to finish this one up and then do another colored one. I think that should make it much easier to see what’s happening in the photos. Hopefully, it’ll be worth the wait.
Oh, and since a bunch of you asked, I bought my labels through Namemaker. Be warned: it takes awhile to get them. About three weeks or so, but definitely worth the wait.
