Our theme for next month is "Made with Love"... *groan*!!! I'm not good at making anything! I'll give anything a go, but the general consensus is - I'm not very good at anything!!! I've already thrust upon her, a small quilted blanket, and thought "as if the poor girl needs, another one of my half-a$$ efforts"!!! I was going to paint a canvas - but then thought, it probably wouldn't post very well, and when I was going through Mini's closet, I found the taggie, that Catherine had made me! So, I decided I'd give that a go! I bought lots of ribbon (which I use all the time for pressies and stuff, so it won't go to waste), and decided on Satin for one side and faux suede on the other. (H absolutely loved... still does actually, satin. He scratches at the edges of his blankets - so I really wanted satin coz it's a common fav among the young folk!)
I fiddled around, then realised, I'd be sewing the pins into the middle of the taggie, and wouldn't be able to retrieve them! So I re-pinned, sewed and *voila* my TAGLEE was born...
(the colour on the ribbons haven't come out perfectly, in the photos - they are all bright primaries, and a couple of textured gold ones - and I used a couple of "velvet" ribbons - I can't stop scratching these ones!!! LOL!!!)
Now, these are "trick" photos, coz my sewing is rather woeful, and there are several tucks on the black side... but black covers everything, doesn't it?!!! It proves that it was "Made with Love" and not "Made in a Sweatshop!" I gave all the ribbons a good tug, and by some miracle - they are all sewn in good!!! So that's my greatest achievement today (other than getting out of bed!) What did you do?!!
