On Monday's post, I gave you a peek at today's project.
This post is not a tutorial or a DIY because, truthfully, I really didn't know what I was doing as I was doing it. I did a Google image search for "birthday owl crown", went a little crazy in Hobby Lobby, and just played around for a few hours when I got home. In fact, one of the images that came up on Etsy was this little guy from an Etsy shop. I really liked the look of the stitches on top but I didn't know how to do it so I then used the words "blanket stitch" (which the link above uses in its description) and did another Google search which lead me to this video.
Moral of the story:
Without the awesomeness of Google, the sewing skills that my grandmother taught me when I was super young, and the time/ willingness to experiment (i.e. mess up) none of this would have happened.
And now the out-takes:
What projects have ya'll been working on lately? Do you go for step-by-step directions or did you do like me (in this project) and just jump into head first ?
