|Can't believe I'm saying this, but I need to buy more ribbon. Need some wide silky or grosgrain red here.|
One wrapping sack down, countless more to go. I even boxed the corners.
I wish this fabric showed up as well in photos as it does in person. The color are vibrant and it's covered in shiny silver glitter. If someone knows a camera trick, please share. Here is close-up that kinda shows it.
|Yay for Joann's remnant piles!|
A thank you to sewing muse Sandra for the challenge!
With all the busy-ness, I never showed you my Christmas tree.
Still love the tulle with lights for skirting.
|OOOOHHHHHH, isn't that pretty?!!! Yes, but I'm glad it's all put away now. There is just so much fa la la I can take.|
Take care, y'all.
I actually have to buy ribbon on a fairly regular (although not frequent) basis - despite the stash I have, there are still times when you need a certain something-something, and stash items just won't do! That's a lovely print - I do SO love Joanns remmie bins, although they tend to be 90% fleece+weird "other" fabrics - nice remmies are getting scarcer than hen's teeth! I reread your bag description from your email - I wasn't quite getting it until I saw the photo, and now I understand what you did :) If it makes life easier, you can use a grommet for the center hole, instead of a buttonhole :D Congrats on your CHALLENGE COMPLETED status - let me think on the next one, haha. I cut out and kitted 3 more drawstring bags tonight to finish up a piece of Christmas fabric I had hanging around - shall I challenge you to another bag of any kind (drawstring, zipper, whatever catches your fancy)?ReplyDelete
BTW - your tree is lovely, and your tulle treeskirt is TODIEFOR :)
You are off to a wonderful start!!! Sandra is a great motivator.ReplyDelete
