The Finished Wrap – Part 1

OK…so sewing got tables for quite a while…was working on other projects…and I really didn’t have any sewing mojo!  So, today I broke out the machine again [and broke my first needle – Does that make me a pro now?] and finished sewing the 5 wraps for the girls.

The green trim was definitely giving me problems…lots of problems.  PSA - For a major novice sewer, tiny trim is a bitch!

So, I grabbed a towel and a piece of the trim and high-tailed it to Joann’s in hopes that the “sewing” lady was working.  I needed help [sure, I could have just skipped the trim…but it was friggin’ adorable and the princess  actually said, “Don’t give up Mommy, it’s so pretty!”]…and she was the only one  I could think of that might have a solution.  She suggested Steam-a-Seam…worked wonders [Chris might not like the appearance of his beloved iron, but it worked!].

After the trim, came the hand sewing of ribbon fish.  A bow would have been much easier and faster [and I might be cursing myself later tonight as I work on the other 4] but the fish is so much cuter.

“Sew” what do you think:
