I really, truly was surprised and impressed with how my first two dolls turned out. It seems crazy to me that 4 weeks ago I didn't know how to sew anything and now I can actually make something that looks semi-decent.
Well doesn't showing off come back to bite you in the butt. Last night I was working away on a new doll, but this time I decided to make it a wee bit fancier. So I attempted the ever-elusive....
Maybe it didn't help that it was 11:00 at night and I had the back-to-work-in-the-morning-jitters. Maybe I was just too cocky.
I cut the little rectangle, sewed a decorative edge on top, ironed the seam allowances, then stitched the small fabric piece onto the front of the dress. I was so giddy that I actually, literally, shouted out loud to Alex (who was annoyed because he was watching Holmes on Homes) that, "I MADE A POCKET!"
Then I looked closer. That's when I saw this:
A totally crooked pocket that I sewed...... shut. I'm awesome.
