Does that mean this girl actually packed and moved a can of expired sauerkraut, you ask? Yes, I did.
Nasty spoiled food related anecdotes aside, I messed this project up pretty good, and it still came out pretty good. I'm going to blame it on my still feeling pretty sick, but you can free to take that as an excuse, because it sort of is.
I wanted to try thread sketching, but for the life of me I couldn't come up with anything to sketch. I want to use this can as a pen/pencil/spare change/wadded up gum wrapper holder on my desk, but I was afraid that a sketched pencil would just look like a wonky rectangle. So, I dug deep and come up with.....the letter A. In a pale, nearly impossible to see, pink. Wild, I know. There wasn't much to it, but it did help me realize that thread sketching might not be as scary as I'd thought, and I want to do it again. And soon.
The fabric doesn't wrap around the top of the can as called for, because I read and read and read and my medicine riddled brain just could not comprehend the directions. I debated trekking upstairs to pull up the original tutorial to see if the pictures would help, but realized that I didn't have any glue anyway, so that point was pretty moot. I sewed the edges shut and that's it.
I want to take it to work with me tomorrow, but my sniffer is still outta whack and I'm afraid it still smells like sauerkraut.
