Lots of questions came in after my last post, asking for a close-up view of exactly how I used jewelry monofilament or fishing line in my tulle ruffles, so I thought I’d show a short video today. I demo the process twice…once from a distance showing how I have my sewing machine set up, and then again nice and close so everyone can see exactly how my sewing machine catches the wire in the hem.
Take a peek below! (If you’re reading this in your inbox and can’t see the video below, just click here to go right to the blog and watch there!)
And, I’m happy to report that the mermaid queen costume is complete (with a cape not shown above…that of course has layers, and layers, and layers of ruffles!) and I finished this year in record time…a full three days before Halloween.
For those of you still sewing, I’m sending good thoughts your way. I’ve been in your shoes…sewing straight on through until it’s time to actually put on costumes.
Hang in there.
And for all of your hard work that doesn’t get nearly enough recognition, I officially give you permission to eat all of yours kids peanut butter cups.
