This past week, I have been working on a new Easter set for babies and little girls. Recently, I have definitely enjoyed designing all the frilly, cute little girl's accessories that I have placed for sale in my Etsy Shoppe. I guess it reminds me when my own daughters were young! It was so much fun in those days designing for them!
Usually when I am designing something, I am very lucky to have the actual crochet item come out pretty close to what I envisioned in my mind. But this week, I struggled trying to get the little girl's purse design for the Set just right. When I was finished with it, it DID look exactly like what I had been seeing in my vision and sketch, but unfortunately, when I began to sew the purse together, I realized it was not going to work! Rats! For some reason, the finished project turned out to be too awkward looking.
I am very fortunate that design mishaps don't happen to me very often. Perhaps this is because most of my designs are usually quick and easy to do, I don't know.
I was terribly discouraged yesterday. It is hard to abandon a project that you have put your energy into. But today, in the light of a new day, I have decided to re-design a new purse to match the Easter Bonnet that is already completed. So, it is back to the drawing board! Hopefully, I will be able to complete my "Put On Your Easter Bonnet" set as planned!
