It's Done

Yes, it's finally finished -- well almost.  I still have to sew the buttons on the back, and finish the bonnet.  But the stressful part is complete.  When I started this project, I truly believed that I had everything that I needed.  After doing crafts for 20 years, I would have thought that I had every size and color of ribbon that existed.  Boy was I wrong.  I searched high and low for 1/2" satin ribbon.  Oh I found 1/4", 1", but not the 1/2" that I needed.  However, in searching for the ribbon, I found this silver loopy braid.  I thought it looked pretty good, but would Kris and George approve??  They did, but then the white plastic heart shaped buttons looked cheap.  Back to the internet, and I found these silver buttons with glass centers that had the same loops as the braid.  I used my new machine for the buttonholes for the first time, and I've got to tell you that the more I use that machine, the more I love it.  This afternoon I'm hoping to get the buttons sewn on, and hope to finish the bonnet tomorrow morning.  I get the kids at 12:30, and sewing with them here isn't an option.  Sew, there it is, Jakes christening outfit for his christening on Sunday.
