Ah, the joys of working with difficult fabrics. One satin in particular has given me fits.
This satin, my test fabric for Oakie's bow-tie, was actually a dream to sew with. Surprisingly. Made me forget how other satins might behave.
And then there's the other satin. Oakie's choice, of course.
First attempt at turning the bow-tie resulted in shreds. Darn.
Second attempt had the stiletto poking through the end of the tie and leaving unsightly holes. Double-darn.
|Imperfect finished product. Oh, wait... it's finished!|
But I persevered.
|"Ready for my close-up"|
Reminded myself multiple times that I am sewing an outfit for a stuffed penguin. Have to say it out loud just to keep the perfectionist voices from taking over.
And I finished: bow-tie, tuxedo pant, and cummerbund. This boy is ready for the wedding in July.
And, as I've heard tell before: Done is Beautiful!
