End of year bal


Bal 01Masque 01
It’s already the end of the school year, and it was the high school bal for my daughter. The theme this year was “bal masqué”.

It’s not the most graceful pose, but I was in a hurry while taking photos and it’s the one in which the dress I sewed is the nicer ;-)

Furnitures for the mask :
– tulle,
– stick of fabric paint,
– clinging film.

There are 2 types of protection for the Silhouette Cameo :

– the dust cover (but you can’t carry it),
– totes (as you can bring your laptop, they are too big).

After 2 weeks of several tries and prototypes, I have found the solution : the Silhouette is protected, cords are stored and you can carry it !

I couldn’t resist : it matches with my drawers !

Pattern in English HERE.

At the end, instead of making a chain stitch, I twisted 3 black threads and then folded them by the middle.
