It's all about edges today....
I finished the edge on the bottom of Little Redcap's dress and I'm rather happy about it. I only wish that the little red dots would have appeared a bit more visible. But I will leave it as it is.
That is however not the case with the shoes! They are most certainly going to be unravelled. I'm not at all happy with the stitches - they are too wonky. And I know that this particular detail will annoy me every time I use the tunic, so I had better start picking out the floss from the fabric.
This other tunic is coming along nicely as well. Yesterday I managed to sew in the sleeves and now I have decided that it's time to make edge of the tunic.
I have been keeping my favourite pale pink trimming since May 2009 - just waiting for the right project. I must admit that I have been tempted to add the trimming on a girl's dress or two, but I wanted to keep it for me. And so I did.
So I'm exited to see how it will look on the dotty tunic. I have plans about some stitches on the trimming, but haven't really figured out which color to use. I'm sure time will tell me....
