Now that I'm all better, I am back to working on the monkey and working on Halloween costumes as well. I'm not sure how, but with the halloween costumes my math seems to be off and the tops of both are way to big. But that's an easy fix! I really love the way my daughter's is turning out! But oh, the ruffles!! Her petticoat is finally done, and it wasn't too difficult to make either. A little time consuming, but not as bad as I had originally thought. I think the worst part was cutting the tule. I had a hard time keeping it even. But once it was all cut out, I just rolled it up, and used my rotary cutter to make it even. Sewing was the easiest! It looks like a little tutu! I found a video tut on youtube done by threadbanger. It helped out A LOT!!!!
And crazy me has joined ANOTHER swap! I wasn't going to, but I couldn't help it. It's a Magic Yarn Ball swap (MYB) And they're so much fun!! For those of you who don't know what one is, you basically take a skein of yarn, unravel it, the re-ravel it into a b all shape, but inside you put little knick-knackey things that you make or buy. You can put just about anything inside of it. I had a lot of fun the last time I did one, and I'm super excited to get to do this one as well! My partner likes a lot of the same stuff I do, and she likes all kinds of neat things too, I have to be careful not to go overboard! But it will definately be easy with this one! lol
Off to go work on the monkey, then take a break from that and work on halloween costumes, then take a break from that and work on monkey again!
Happy Crafting everyone!
