Making it Mine - WIP Wednesday


For several days now, I've been stitching up a gift for a special someone that is my own design.  I sketched my idea up on paper, made the calculations and then dove in.  No prototype here as I need this gift finished ASAP! ;o)  That being said, I find it goes best if I don't rush myself (fewer mistakes) and even though I'm taking longer than I had hoped, it's coming along nicely. I may even have a finish to share soon.

Happily, I'm at the stage where I can add a few little extra touches that really make it "mine".


 Details like self-made binding, colourful press snaps and even a few handmade labels (hello fussy cuts, rubber stamps and fabric pens!) for embellishment.  Several special notions have been strewn about the table as I decide which I want to include and where to add them. What fun!

  2. Looking forward to seeing the end result. Love the fabric. I also love your new header, all pretty in pink.

    I'm actually working on a Chanel style jacket these days. Just beginning. I'm thread tracing onto the fabric. I need a lot of breaks, hence blogging.

  16. That must be a special person indeed as your project seems to be quite labour intensive, hope you'll show it finished sometime on your blog.
