|Bird Flower Detail|
The pattern was well written although I do confess having sewn this with my friend who is an experienced seamstress and walked me through much of it - especially the zipper!
I only modified a couple of things: 1) the pleat in the middle comes out rather than tucked in to better highlight the fussy placed fabric print 2) I tacked around the bird to hold down the flower rather than use a button because that would have covered him up.
Overall, my version resembles the original very closely. You can see a pinned photo of the one from the book on my board here.
It's Wednesday - but read on you'll see why I have nothing new this week for WIP (be sure to check it out anyway)
Rotary MishapA routine sewing session took a wrong turn last week. I'll never really know exactly how I managed to have my rotary jump the curb and sliced off a chunk of my left index finger, but it did. A bit of a wake up call reminder of how accidents happen even when doing the same thing you've done thousands of times - so be careful!
You won't find any pictures of my injury- I hate those on blogs - so instead I'll share a favorite of our dogs from a 4 day stay at my mom's. We called it a field trip or mini-vaca, something they don't ever do so it was a big deal.
