I finished up this ornament I started this week. I love how it turned out. This one might become a gift. I think this pattern is so pretty I might make this one again. Sort of a subtle Christmas symbol.
Here is a less subtle Christmas symbol. I finally finished this piece up as a pillow. As you can see, I still need to squish around the stuffing a little bit to get the top less pucker-y. I put off the finishing step on this one for a long time because I always use velvet to make my Christmas pillows, and velvet makes an absolute mess in my sewing area. When I cut it, I get these little tiny tufts just everywhere. It takes me a while to get the whole place cleaned up. Still, it didn't take me very long to sew this up, I don't know why I procrastinated so long with it.
Having finished two things, I looked in my basket of projects that were stuck at the last finishing step and found one more for this week. (Please tell me you have a basket of unfinished projects!)
I had put this one off because the directions suggested finishing it with some "Regency era fabric." Right. I was pretty sure I didn't have anything that would work in my stash so this one went into the basket. Guess what? As soon as I started looking I found several fabrics that would work. Kicking myself again for putting off the finishing step on this one.
