This seemed so cool in my head, and yet I feel like it turned out mom-ish. I thought stitching around the edges would make it more hip. I'm not so sure. This is supposed to be a little table runner you can place your centerpiece on. I have one more idea in my head. (You know my new philosophy- yes I'm going to make it. I'm not giving up.)
Finally, I'm feeling brave enough to list some things on etsy that I've made. I really would rather be selling stuff I make, but really it's so much easier to sell vintage items. My feelings don't get hurt if some vintage item doesn't sell because I wasn't responsible for making it. But the whole point is to sell handmade. I'm feeling like I'm kinda getting a sense of my style.
I'm also learning while designing and making things that it takes 3 takes to perfect something. This is really hard to deal with. I want it to be just right the first time. But now I just kinda accept that if it's a new idea it takes a few takes.
On another note, I'm really wanting to say some bad words because I shelled out a lot of money to get the lens cleaned on my camera and now I see a little black spot on that first picture- argh! I've been really good with putting my camera away and keeping it clean. So maddening!
I have more to share tomorrow!
