#tbt to this homage to my beauty of a bicycle made using a gorgeous pattern by @trueforthaus. We took the bikes out for the first time in our new digs, and it was glorious! I am so itching to get my art up on the wall! (Sidenote: I'm still trying to figure out how that's going to happen. The walls in the main living spaces are textured plaster, so nails and command strips are pretty much out. The place clearly used to have a picture railing that someone took down because unknown reasons. I'm uncomfortable making big screw holes in a place that isn't ours. So I'm deep down a Google rabbit hole nightly. Any suggestions from my wise friends?)
Mending isn't usually my crafting jam, but Siblings 1 and 3 managed to tear a hole in Sibling 2's weighted blanket. So, I had some hand stitching to do. And the tear was pretty shredded, so it was an ugly fix. So it got a cute wolf patch. And now, all is well again. #mending#handsewing#blanketstitch#wolfpatch#weightedblanket
It's been a busy week (between a camping trip, car troubles, and bunch of boring adult errands) but I'm back at the sewing machine today! I put the invisible zipper in the wedding dress and I'm attaching this applique before closing up the lining. T-minus one month until the wedding!
It took a horrifying and painstaking nearly two hours to #handsew the hem on just one of my #saqueback sleeve ruffles and I still have three more in the #chintz shown to do and two handkerchief weight muslin to do. Help! I’m neither this patient nor this driven. Anyone have a tip for making faster progress? I need something to hook me back in because otherwise the dress is almost done. (And don’t look too closely at my glaring flaws, it’s what’s under the dress that this is all about!) 😇💅👗⌛️✂️#tips#18thcentury#sewing#handsewn#handsewing#18thcenturyfashion#18thcenturydress
