well, this one turned out better. not much. but still better. and better is better right?
things i've learned from this project:
1) i need to take some lessons in hand sewing. probably the reason why i hate to hand sew is because i don't know how to do it properly. refer to the following picture for an example of this.
it's bad right? you won't hurt my feelings if you agree. i KNOW it's bad.
2) always, always, ALWAYS, follow directions the first go 'round. after that you can skip steps and make your own alterations/adjustments.
3) i want to learn to crochet. ok, so i really didn't learn that from this project. but i do want to learn how to crochet. that's what my sister's bff, cerise does (right?). and she's the bomb at it. i think i'll put this is on my new year's resolution list.
