Today was the final day for me to work on those Domos. Still even with the knowledge that after today all my time was going to spent making Christmas baskets I still stalled and avoided working on them until after lunch. The reason, I just plain hate them. After lunch I knew I couldn't avoid it any longer, not if I wanted to get them done today. So I started to work. I needed to add the collar to the jacket. And it was terrible. Adding a collar messed up the sleeves, and gave me some weird bunching. It was just not a good look. But I muscled through to finish it. I'm not terrible proud of either of them. All I see when I look at them is every screwed up stitch or ill-fitting garment. Why did I think I could draft all these gosh darn patterns for them? This was really a huge project, and a terrible one too. If I knew then what I know now.... I would have done something different. Something less stressful and less ugly. But I finished them.
I sewed on pink roses on both of them, still can't find the other ones, and they were finished. I've already wrapped them to get them out of my sight. I ended up using Christmas Disney Princess Paper, it was either that or something super Christmas-y, or some simple deep blue paper. I decided I wanting something special, but totally me. So they're getting the Princess paper, because they should expect it by now.
I also tried to do some doll sewing today since I won't be able to really get a chance to do anything like that until after the wedding. Sad thing is I really couldn't think of anything to sew. Again I was sewing to just sew, again nothing decent came out of it. I did take a stab at making Charlotte's Christmas dress, but wasn't happy with it. I think that I have to totally rethink what I'm planning for her. Honestly, I've been playing around with that stretch velvet and I don't really care for it. It kind of feels cheap, and look cheap. Maybe I'll use it for something I like, but not for this project. Like I said I really need to just rethink what I'm going to make for Charlotte. At least I've got plenty of time for that little project.
