I’m not good at details. I tend to get rushed and want it to be done. I would love to add a little embroidery, more appliqué, or maybe even some patchwork to many things I sew, but I never take the time. I did a little more than usual with my giveaway wristlet and received some nice comments because of it. I don’t even get my tags added to many things just because it’s another step and I’m too lazy.
I want to add more detail to the crown, but I can’t get myself to do it. I love the way it turned out and was inspired by this mama and this one, who sells amazing ones in her shop (if you don’t want to make you’re own).
I made my own pattern out of construction paper to figure out the correct size and proportion of things. I used ½” elastic for the back and covered it with a bit of scrap fabric. There is 100% wool felt for the front pieces and a wool blend for the inside piece so it wouldn’t be too itchy.
I’ve had this ribbon for a long time and was happy to finally have a project to use it. I would like to add more appliques or embroidery like a horse, helicopter, or house…
But I’m done with it. That’s it.
Oh well. Baby steps are what I need to focus on. Maybe next time I can take a little more time and do a little more.
