so, i started with this in april. but after i sewed all the panels together i wasn’t really sure what to do with it. & i couldn’t think of a way to keep the top part from stretching out & losing it’s shape. so i put it aside until i knew what to do with it.

yesterday i was determined to finish it. i STILL wasn’t sure what to do with it & spent the majority of the day staring at it & pondering my options. i wanted to do something with red sequins & red polka dot fabric, but no matter how i arranged it, it just didn’t look right. so i decided to keep it all black & white.

i chopped about 25 cm off, cut triangle inserts from that part & sewed them on all the different panels. then i added a polka dot bow, that i had found at the bottom of my sewing case, to the top & lace to keep it from stretching out & losing it’s shape. to top it off i added more lace at the bottom & hand-stitched a polka dot heart to it.

& yes, i made this to sell. i haven’t listed it yet, because i want to make some more stuff first so i can list more things at once. i’m aiming for this weekend.

what do you think? seriously, i want to know. & i KNOW a fair amount of people are reading this; not a day goes by that no one views this blog. surely you have an opinion.

EDIT: i just noticed that the total views of my blog are over a 1000. wow.
