Another HAPPY MONDAY to you! I had a wonderful weekend. I started and almost completed another small wholecloth project to honor the 9th President of the United States, President Harrison. I am hoping to show you some pictures in a couple of days.
Meanwhile – the fancy hem on my baby daygown just got fancier. I weaved a very thin double-faced satin ribbon through the lace beading, and this is how it is looking:
Compare the present look with the previous pictures:
Now, you know why I had embroidered my rosebuds pink:
A few tips that might be helpful to you if you weave the ribbon through the lace beading:
1. Use a large tapestry needle with a large eye to “thread” the ribbon for weaving
2. Always check to make sure the ribbon does not “turn” on you onto the other face as you weave – it will save you a lot of heartache especially if the ribbon will be sewn into the placket as in a front placket
I appreciate you all being involved with my daygown saga (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5)!!! Like I had mentioned to some of you, garment construction is an uphill battle for me… I am hoping to be able to complete the front placket to show you in a couple of days. So stay tuned! I also have other news. But for now, I need to focus on finishing the background quilting on my Harrison project as I am on a deadline.
Meanwhile, you still have a bit of time to leave a comment for my “Pieceful Garden” pillow giveaway!
