I'm so happy with how it turned out!! I really enjoyed the paper pieces portions too, I see more of that in my future I think! But alas, this cover is not perfect. For one thing I screwed up my measurements (or ignored the bias completely… probably both). For I a lazy sewer, often neglecting my iron and trying to cut shapes with out patterns… oh well.
Anything I would do different? Remember I bought a paper pattern for this years ago and use that instead of winging it.
See that? Not long enough.
Same deal here, but I also sewed the extender I made to the wrong side… and didn't fix it. It's on the lining and really, no ones looking but me. It would have been a different story if this was a gift but it isn't so I don't care. I'm just happy it's finished!
And since we all love a good photo of others craft space, here's a few shots of my miserable excuse for a sewing station:
We moved in November, but I'm still unpacking. I mostly just don't know where all that crap is going to go. I do have some plans… perhaps if my scheming comes to pass I will update you in the future?
What do you think? Ever have projects turn out different than you plan but you still love them?
