Dove

Papercuts snowflake #3 – Dove

 

For some reason this one really gave me fits.  I managed to get all the fabric right side out, but putting the pieces together was one dumb mistake after another.  Clear visual and written directions aren’t a lot of help if you don’t look at them!

I thought things were moving along swimmingly – all four part As were attached to their part Bs.

That was when the seam ripping began.  Part C was not going to fit on that short edge.

Sigh – I’d sewn A & B together on the wrong sides.  And because I was working in an assembly line fashion, that meant all the sections were mis-sewn.

The misaligned version on the left, the corrected version on the right.

The Cs finally on, my next struggle was to get the seams to line up right.  There was more seam ripping — three times on the last seam! — and a bit of cursing, but it finally came out.

Just don’t look at the back.  There is a lot of fraying.
