Sorry ladies, it's more Zakkaing again today! I know, change the record Wendy. I will, soon!
This week's project was a picture frame by Ayumi of Pink Penguin. The picture did look sweet in the book. In reality? Not so much.
The supplies listed called for chipboard. Not having a dedicated woodwork room in my house, I went with thick cardboard instead. There was very little machine sewing involved, I pieced two strips of scraps, then it was hand sewing as shown below.
I didn't have any ric rac, so I used a lacy ribbon instead. I wish I'd left it off. It looks stupid and only accentuates the fact that the frame does not fit on the backboard.
See? Doesn't that look crap? I'm not sure how it happened. Maybe my rubbish measuring skills but I'm not happy with it.
If you want to see a much better version of this frame, visit this week's host Anna at Noodlehead, and to see many much better versions, go and visit this week's link up.
If anybody wants me, I'll be in a corner sobbing as I attempt to make a clasp purse and failing miserably (failing miserably at the purse making, not the sobbing. Sobbing I can do)...
