Sweet Silver Bells
It's a great timesuck.
And it can be inspiring.
I hate to knock off shit, but when I see stuff on there sometimes I think "Hey, I can make that!"
And that's what happened with the jingle bell project.
I saw things like these in my Etsy wanderings. And I thought to myself--well, you know.
Without further adieu, I give you my Beastly Holiday Bunting!
It's so big, come Christmas time I'll be putting it in the kitchen.
Why the hell not? The kitchen is the only room I don't normally decorate (why yes, I do have Christmas bathroom decorations!).
How much do I freaking love this???
She was a beast to make though. But I'm blaming that on my shitball of a machine.
I could not get the damn thing to make a consistent zig-zag stitch when I was connecting all the points.
Instead of zig-zag I got irregular sine waves--and that was when the machine was behaving.
Oh well. Despite the unholiness that is my sewing machine, I think it turned out pretty good.
I love this time of year--Halloween: the Gateway Holiday!
