I just looked up Jill's site to find a link to remind you all of this sew along advent calendar that I'm making and noticed that my assignment this week was 8 ornaments, not 5 like I thought. So now I'm 3 short. I may or may not make three more, we'll see if this post gets updated.
Week two went okay, I felt really behind but managed to complete the assignment with time to spare (or so I thought).
Last week I embroidered all of my numbers and sewed them onto my backing piece. This week I cut out my tree and sewed it on.
A quick side note... don't you hate how the second time you do a project you end up so much happier with it than you were the first time? I want this advent calendar to be my second attempt because I'm already doing things I wish I could change. I wish my tree could be taller but I'm limited by to the size of the rectangle I cut out. It'll work but there are things I would change if I could.
So I cut out and sewed on my tree.
Then I made 5 ornaments
You'll notice that lots of them are white but that's because I was so busy with the car seat that I started a bit late, meaning I chose easy ornaments. They happened to mostly be white, I will add some colour though.
Here's a close up of the individual ornaments.
He sure is a sad snow man hey? Not sure how that happened.
Hopefully next week goes okay even though I plan on tackling the high chair re-cover.
