Before | After
This weekend was my boyfriend's nieces birthday, since she likes unicorns . .
I decided to make her a stuffed Unicorn Plush. My inspiration was the two images below that I found on Pinterest.
I had to make due with the fabrics I had, but I have to say it was so much fun creating this little Unicorn
The Birthday girl named it "Twinkle" right away
I have had the least luck when it comes to sewing machines, in part I blame this on how slow my sewing projects come to life or some to never see the light of a day at all! Over the years I may have touched about 3 all of which to my dismay died pretty much the same fashion that had to do something with the bobbin (excuse my lack of technician vocabulary) so after many hours of contemplation I came to realize maybe it's the projects I am working on that requires more heavy duty equipment . . I bought this sewing machine in the hope of having a better experience creating my projects :)
Here are some of the new stitches I learned from the free class that came with the purchase:
Hump Jumper - used for Jeans
Over Cast stitch- when you have two fabrics
Bling Ham Stick - to create a near to invisible stitch
Button Hole - must put (interfacing fabric) in side the fabrics
I have recently been loving chokers . . .
For the entire wedding season I found myself wearing my 3 different sizes of black velvet chokers! I found that not only they are such a minimalistic accent matching most of my outfits, also there is no dangling danger of regular necklaces working close with the clients. As I was getting tired of my collection of velvet chokers I decided to venture out into more creative ideas and I am loving what I came up with . . . totally planning to make more in the future!
