So, I pulled out my second top from my class with Elizabeth Hartman—a Looptastic mini. The first was my Owl Eyes mini, finished
I already had 2 of the rings completed—only the green one was left. That was three days ago. And I had to go buy and pre-wash the background fabric—Kona Natural was what I went with. One of the blues has a neutral that perfectly matches the natural. I have a horrible time with neutrals, I don't seem to like any of them!
As you can tell, the circles are not perfect. I actually cut apart the green twice, trying to get a circle instead of an oval. After carefully examining the photos in the book, I see those aren't perfect either.
The applique was much, much easier than I expected.
I found something in my stash that I will be using for the back:
The selvedge isn't stamped to the line—I think it is Wild Thyme by P&B Textiles. I love this fabric and am questioning my choice to put it on the back—but I bought it several years ago when my favorite LQS went out of business and haven't touched it yet. I really do not want to buy anything else. It is time to cut into this!
