taking another crack at Dotees

After my first dotee attempt I was REALLY discouraged. It was so much harder than it looked! Well, it turned out maybe it was my planning and lack of common sense. So I decided to try again, and was WAY more pleased with the results.

These are both for celestial swaps and I am happy with how they turned out. I was surprised that a lot of the red shiny stuff wore off the star while I was working with it. I stamped the letters on the twill banners on the moon. Thanks for visiting!

Taggy Collagey Layout

I have also fallen in love with Pinterest, and my favorite layouts I see there are the busiest ones, covered with lots of tags and collage elements. They inspired me to make this:

My First Dotee

Making this was a bigger challenge than I thought it would be. I usually have complete confidence in my sewing skills until I sit down at my machine. I was committed to making it because I was in a swap, so I had to stick to it. In the end, the skirt didn't line up in the back, but otherwise it pretty much came together. I am definitely going to try another one!

So this was a bigger challenge than I thought it would be!
