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 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.
