Daughter asked her dad to make her two latch hook pillows using these kits that had skates on them-last year.
He finished them a long time ago but he put them away and forgot about them until he found them again this week.
Of course he asked me to figure out how to turn them into pillows. Machine sewing through this thick mesh isn't fun. You also have to creep along while you push the yarn back so you don't catch it in the seam. It's painfully fiddly.
It took me three tries with lots of unpicking to get one finished. I fashioned a wonky and puckery envelope back so I could stuff a 12 inch pillow form stuffed inside. It's not perfect but it's done. That's my new mantra.
If you squint you can make out some hockey skates. I had to take a break before I tackled the figure skates. It was quite a job.
I didn't have to squint! Good job on the first pillow. The second one should go a bit easier now that you have the technique down pat.ReplyDelete
Is there anything you and the Mister can't do when it comes to crafts? I didn't even have to squint and I could see those skates! I think you did a great job. As for the camping trailer, I think you and the Mister should go for it! It's so much fun. And if you hunt, you can really get some bargains. It just takes patience. Knowing your persistence with your crafts, Iyou have oodles of patience.ReplyDelete
That turned out great! No squinting needed, and not one bit wonky!ReplyDelete
