I had to wait til after Christmas to post the things I made as gifts...
Soooooome people like to peek!
I tried my hand at a few sewing projects this year:
'Sock' Long-Johns and Dammit Dolls.
These were truly 'labours of love' because though I hold a College Degree in Dressmaking & Design... I hate sewing. Truly despise doing it. I used to sew a lot, perhaps that did me in but likely it's because I have Carpal Tunnel and it just... hurts. :O(
These were unstuffed plain muslin dolls I hand-painted the faces and the 'D' logo on (front & back), stuffed and sewed shut.
Whenever things don't go so well...
And you want to hit the wall and yell...
Here's a little dammit doll
That you can't do without.
Just grasp it firmly by the legs
And find a place to slam it
And as you whack the stuffing out
Yell, "DAMMIT! DAMMIT! DAMMIT!"
Wonderful Gift for the Men on my list... 2 pairs of socks masquerading as long-johns!
I made you some long johns
But they turned out too small
In fact I don't think
They will fit you at all.
So take off the buttons
And snip the threads
You will have two pair of socks instead!
