Our pal Amanda joined us for the fun. She and I made mannequin pin cushions, as presented on DYI Dish.
|Amanda's pretty project|
Amanda did an amazing job. I did not.
After completely messing up the seam allowances, I produced a chunky chica instead of the shapely lady presented on the DIY Dish tutorial. SIGH!!!!!
On the up side, we had a wonderful time. I fixed Sandra's rusty scissors, a fluffy dinosaur she wasn't happy with, and I found her a template she needed for another project.
To paraphrase John Milton, "They also serve, who only sit and rip out seams..."
Thank you Sandra for lots of fun, and for taking the photos.
Check out the DIY Dish if you haven't already seen the great tutorials. It wasn't their fault. I didn't do 1/4 inch seams, and if you ignore the 1/4 inch seam, nothing good can happen.
