In order to kick off this blog, I’m showing off a project I finally finished after working on it off and on for over two years.
My grandmother gave my family a number of craft kits years ago that I’ve been gradually working my way through. This particular kit was for a 20 inch tall soft-sculpture Tyrannosaurus rex, designed by Michelle Lipson in 1976. Slightly scary to think that the fabric is probably older than I am!
Part of the reason this project took me so long was that for a large part of it, I was hand sewing everything. Once I decided to buy a sewing machine in January 2013, the rest started to come together much faster.
I’m so glad I finally finished this project and I can’t believe it actually took me more than two years! Of course, now I have to find a spot for a 20″ T. rex somewhere in my apartment….
Anyone else finish a crazy long project recently, or am I the only one who lets stuff drag on this long?
