Detail 278 and To cut it up or not? June 6th, 2007

Wheatear Stitch

I covered one join with Wheatear Stitch, this weeks TAST Stitch… if you look carefully you will see that the stitches on the right are slightly different to those on the left end, I was going under the loop instead of under the straight stitches…it does look better when done under the straight stitches but I didn’t bother redoing the missdone stitches because the thread almost blends with the fabric and you do really have to look carefully to see it.

Barbie modeling dressSome years back mum settled on a style of dress that is quick and easy for her to make, she varies it with different colours, trims, made from cotton jersey it is easy to care for, it can be dressed up or down, looks nice on her and most importantly is comfortable, she has many of them and I wanted to make one for my clothsline…Jersey is not a favourite fabric of mine and at first I thought I didn’t have any, then I remembered the box of Barbie Doll cloths where I found a lovely print jersey that I think mum would like, it is an outfit made by my daughters other Granny and the Question is Do I Cut it Up? How far do I go in the pursuit of creativity?

Umm best do an experiment to see if I can actually make a dress as small as I want it, (about 1 1/2 inchs high)…For my experiment I used a piece of very old T shirt that I use to clean my glasses…it took a bit of trial and error but my experiment was so successful that I won’t need to remodel Barbie’s dress, even the colour looks good on the background that it will be on.
