Craftzine and Singer hold contests fairly often and the winner wins a sewing machine or in this case a serger. Not that I need another machine but I'm going to be teaching some fashion and sewing classes again soon and the kids have nothing! I collected a few old machines from friends but I have to tell you, "old" just does not work. So this is my second attempt at entering , "for the kids".
This was a Me, My Scarf and I contest.
The scarf was done with an old pair of levi's.
An old sweater that became a felt wad in the dryer (accidentally) and an old model.
Part of the rules were to photograph it on YOURSELF!
Everything was going well until I read this part. After the first photo shoot, I quickly realized "cute" was no longer an adjective I could embrace. I then remembered my mother telling me to, "photograph yourself laying down....all the wrinkle fall back into your hairline".
Well, that didn't work either.
It's a bit difficult photographing hanging upside down on your bed with a bow. The bow seems to get in the way and unless you do it all quickly, your eyes bug out and your face turns red.
Therefore, cropping was used on the third try!
