I’ve been having a good time keeping up with everyone’s WIP updates for our ongoing Challenge. Seriously, we started this challenge with hopes to encourage you all to get excited again about those left behind projects. I myself have been so inspired by what you all have achieved .
Some have finished two or three WIPs and keep on moving on to the next. Others have restarted projects and found a new joy for them. Then we have some who have changed up their initial plans and love what they’re doing now even better than before!
This has been amazing to watch and I look forward to seeing what you all share this week.
I got back to work on my WIP (eggpron) last weekend. This is why I’m grateful to see you all doing so well because it is motivating me to keep going and sewing.
All of the crochet work is done on my project it’s just a matter of sewing on the rows and making pockets for the eggs.
After sewing along the bottom of the first row I marked where I would place the pockets. I put a bobby pin on every 15th stitch marking how wide each one would be. Once that was done I kept whip stitching up along one side.
I kept the yellow yarn connected to the apron in order to secure the pockets in at the top…
With the first apron I didn’t do this but wish I would have.
I tried to get a photo where you could see how I sewed a divider which makes the pocket. I connected the back of the row to the apron all the way up the length of the pocket…
This part is the most time consuming because I have to make sure to keep everything aligned as I’m sewing. If I get off track the pockets will be crooked and possibly turn out a lot smaller. Once you get a flow it goes smooth enough though. When I’m finished with a pocket I just weave the yarns over to the next spot continuing with the next pocket.
Here’s a shot from inside one…
Honestly I am looking forward to getting this done so I can move on to completing the crochet requests from my kids. Soon I’ll have to stop all that I’m doing to make new winter hats for all the guys in my family. Last year I got a late start and was only able to make hats for my two girls.
Here’s another pic with three egg holes…
They look like caves to me. 😄
I’ll return to you with a finished eggpron soon. I plan on starting the next row tonight.
Thanks again for your participation in this challenge as it has really helped motivate me to finish my own project
even if it involves tons of sewing 🙄.
Let’s keep finishing strong and shooting to reach our goals ~ 😘
