Done: Gingerbear Smocking

I was able to finish my picture smocking of the gingerbears. I am pleased with how the bears look. So, the first hurdle is over:

And now onto the next hurdle — the construction! We are going to do with a pattern we cooked up. We shall see how well it will turn out.

I told myself, as I was smocking the bears, that I would never do another picture smocking project. But then, I also found myself jotting down picture smocking plates that I like to incorporate into baby’s dresses. You know, sometimes, we really are our own worst enemy! And like some of you have remarked – I really am a glutton for self-imposed torture! ;)

Have a lovely Tuesday!
