FAIL. FAIL. FAIL.
Please tell me that I am not the only one who experiences this while crafting away yet again another
Let me submit the evidence, and prove to you this FAIL. that I speak of.
This was my take on an owl hat for my daughter, it is also before I could stomach finishing the ears off because it is such a giant FAIL. that it simply belongs in the trash.
First off, I made the pattern just a tad to big on the sides, and a tad to small on length. I also thought it would be fun to do a funky print, but I now believe it is in my best interest to stick to normal owl like patterns and colors.
Secondly, the applique is just God-awful. I used interfacing with it and tried to stitch it on there, but it just looks sloppy. ( My applique is not great, I would appreciate ANY feedback)
Let me tell you a little secret......
Are you listening closely??
All right, I have committed myself to making only handmade presents for Christmas and I am in dire need of a sewing tutor, or mentor. I realize that in the blogging world that means it would not be in person, but I am so new to this, and there is no one where I live to help me. I have asked the (only) quilting store around here, and have not gotten much help. I really want to be a great seamstress, but I feel like I am just failing miserably at it. I need some help, so please if there is anyone out there willing to take me on, I promise to try my hardest, and be great. : )
Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with some caremeled apples, and an easy butternut squash pizza! YUM!
