Today, I got around to doing some weaving; however, I didn’t weave too long since I was simply not feeling the process.
I’m sure we’ve all been there right? We want to engage in a craft, but when we actually get that time, we no longer want to do that. Sometimes, I can push through that and other times (like this evening) I know I better stop since I’m not in that mindset. It was a bit disheartening, especially when you thought you were ready to roll. Since I did want to do “something,” I pulled out that ruffled shirt that I’d been sewing and decided to add some embroidered butterflies to the side. You know, just like the machine embroidered butterflies, that I had added to the pants, but these would be done in a different color.
In the above picture, you see what is going on while the machine is embroidering.
And here’s an example of the completed project. It’s still shows the markings of my chalk pencil. As I mentioned before, it’s important that the placement of your design is accurate.
This shirt isn’t finished. I think I’ll add bead work to some of the butterflies and I do believe, that I’ll remove the sleeves and redo them. Before I sew them together, I might embroider some butterflies to the sleeves. I’ll see how it looks (via paper placement of the design) before I make my decision.
