The Valentine Dress That Is, and the Blog Post That Almost Was
Happy February, sewing friends!
This is McCall’s 7186.
My intent was to blog a review of this one in late January.
My photographer has been traveling out of town extensively, so no pics.
Perhaps a photography session will take place near the end of the month
when we are both in town.
Until then, this is my only picture of this close-fitting knit beauty.
The fabric is Stretch Crushed Velvet English Floral Mauve on Black from Fabric.com
Sorry for the teaser, but there will be a full post toward the end of February.
For those of you who are machine embroiderers,
here is some cute inspiration:
This little ornithological creation is an in-the-hoop design from Pickle Pie Designs.
I used inexpensive felt from Hobby Lobby.
Clear vinyl was used for the cute little peek-a-boo-belly heart window.
I put the jelly beans in their own little clear bags and heat sealed them closed
before they became part of the owls’ abdominal contents.
On the back there is a lapped closure in which to insert sweet treats.
It doesn’t show up so great in these photos, but I used glitter felt for the eyes.
I appreciate the time you spend reading my blog.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Have a l❤vely Valentine’s Day.
