This lovely, soft sweater is the result of several projects in the recent past:
(And likely a few that I have suddenly forgotten.)
|This section will become the Pouch that I am beginning today.|
|For the idea I have in mind, I want 2 pieces the same size.|
That piece in the previous photo is now cut in half.
|The zipper is pinned in place, ready to stitch.|
|Thus the hand-stitched zipper.|
At least there was an alternative.
|The under side of the zipper.|
My Favorite Knot, upper right side of stitching. (You thought I had let that go! :-/)
|I held my breath while I cut through to the zipper.|
|It even opens and closes!|
Holding my breath helped I'm sure.
For now this is as far as the Zipper Project goes, because tonight I was going to the
Etsy Craft Party!
This is an annual, one-time get-together of Etsy crafters and friends who meet to work on projects of the community- or otherwise- variety, drink coffee/tea/water, eat good food, and generally just have a fun time together. This goes even beyond local and national levels, as there are etsy local groups all over this planet.
Really, quite amazing.
This was my first time to attend this gathering.
I had such a wonderful time, met new friends, and came home with crafts that I loved making.
|Love these roses that another crafter demonstrated for all of us to make.|
They look real!
|Even better in the bud vase, |
though the lack of water might give it away that these are really made of crepe paper!
Make your weekend a Crafty One.
