Since my husband has been fussing about my coasters and using my pot holders as coasters, I think these mug rugs would be a perfect Christmas present to him!
Here is a picture of Ebbye wearing the dress, the wind was blowing so her hair was blowing everywhere, it is Texas after all!
I had to seam reap the elastic twice! The elastic is sewn right on to the underside of the waist. The first elastic was hard to keep sewing in a straight line and the waist was still to big,( it turned out the elastic I used was shot) so that is the last time I buy elastic from a yard sale! The second time, it was still two inches too big and the ruffles at the waist was sticking out(it looked like she was ready to fly) and I had sewn some of the material wonky, but I did figure out an easier way to keep the needle going straight while I stretched the elastic. I used my walking foot!
I also had to seam rip the hem and accidently reversed the middle and bottom tiers and I don't remember what else!
She wants another dress just like this, yuck! LOL
I hop these tips help!
Have a merry Christmas!
