I know, I know! It's not Wednesday yet but I made this last night and am just too excited to wait. :)
This sad fella is made from a piece of ivory lace taken from a little girl's dress that I got at the thrift shop (just for refashioning purposes) and a piece of cloth taken from a tan t-shirt.
- On the INSIDE FRONT of my black t-shirt, I centered first the lace and then the tan background so the lace was sandwiched between the t-shirt fabrics.
- I drew my skull outline on the back of the tan piece, pinned it and sewed it with my machine. I used a zig-zag stitch around the outside of the skull and a straight stitch around the eyes and nose.
- I took out the pins and cut the black t-shirt out of the outline on the front, being careful to not cut into the lace. I left the eyes and nose black
- I stitched cording on the front for the mouth.
I am really pleased with the way this turned out for just winging it as I went. I love that he's a little wonky. :)
Sorry for the phone pic. I snapped it quickly at work before someone else entered the restroom. :)
Over the next month or so, I will be putting my sewing room together so I will be able to take better pictures of some of the things plan on making. I'm even enlisting my hubbyman to help me make a custom dress form dummy so I won't have to model things myself. :P
Oh, and I should be getting a wonderful shipment in the mail tonight so come back in a day or two to see what yumminess I got!
Until later, sweet p'tater!
