I did finish them, and am pretty pleased with the results. They are a little sloppy but I cut the pattern out in a hurry. I was leaving to visit a girlfriend and she wanted to see what I was working on....so I needed something to show! As a result the bottom fabric was a little too big, lesson learned!!! The size is a little too big also. I wear between a 7 and a 7 1/2. They say to go up a size so I cut out a size 8. I still need to wash them though, so I think they will shrink up a bit. If not, I'll take them in at the heel. The pattern also calls for stretchy cord, but I had this gorgeous ribbon that looked great with it, so I used that instead. Cording would have been easier, but not as pretty. I have some lovely Christmas flannel that I think I'll use for my next pair. It's starting to get a little chilly here, so flannel sounds really nice!!
My next project is a baby quilt, and I am kind of excited about it! Of course I'm ALWAYS excited about starting a new quilt project. I'm sure I'll have pics in a few days. Or maybe next week since I'm going to visit my Aunt Mary this weekend. My Mom lived with her before she died, and I want to help my Aunt take care of some business. Plus, I really LOVE my Aunt, and she is such a fun lady!!!!
|Isn't that ribbon perfect? It actually looks better in person!|
