Ms. Marvel update!
I started on the scarf…the tedious part. You don’t want to know how long it took me to put the trim on just the edges; I knew adding the funky starburst bit was going to make me want to cry.
Instead of crying, I chose to flail my arms in the air. Sometimes Michael flailed back. It was a thing.
So…to make my life easier I made a weird looking stencil. (no I don’t remember why it looks that weird…I made it back in June, just never got around to using it).
Then I traced it with a fabric marker so it would wash out (not that you’re actually going to see it).
And then I pinned one side, sewed one half of the line and then flipped it over to pin the other. It was moving way too much to risk trying to pin both sides and then sew.
The end result looks like this…I wish it didn’t look quite so much like snakeskin, but it looks fine from a distance, so I’ll deal. Stephanie says it looks good and I’m being too nitpicky. She’s right. My nitpicky side is very resentful of her being right, but she’s right.
Lastly, I’ll leave you a photo of Michael with a stick. We took a brief break to go Pokemon hunting, and Michael found a stick. Also, I realize I’m playing the WordPress lottery with photos here, and that this photo–the entirely unrelated one–will be the one that shows up on facebook. Bring it on, WordPress. Bring it on.
