I finally finished this!! Hooray! I had finished knitting the top quite awhile ago and it has been sitting in the mending pile for all this time.
I blogged about it’s beginning here. One of the reasons it took me so long to finish is because I couldn’t figure out what to do for the back. Should it be as colorful as the front? Should I do some sort of patchwork? Did I want to put a zipper in there? I tried out so many things that just didn’t quite look right that I was beginning to give up. Today I went back into the sewing studio and started pulling out fabric and something clicked!
And I LOVE it! Having something so simple and plain really complements and shows off the vibrancy of the front. I’m so glad I didn’t give up! Now I can’t wait for the kids to come home to tell me what they think!
Since I have had so many projects in the last little while (4 in fact) that have needed to be ripped back and redone for one reason or another, I decided to go back to the drawing board and make a few easy things. Things that I know I can complete without any drama.
