Imperfection



There is a kind of beauty in imperfection.
~Conrad Hall

That is what I’m thinking now.  This veil that I’m making for Zoë is going to be all kinds of imperfect. I am having a difficult time lining up the lace against the edges of the organza, especially around the curves and it looks like I might have cut out the shape of the veil unevenly.  I am hoping that the final product won't be too messed up.  What I know, though, is that this veil is a definitely made with love and comes with it all my hopes and prayers for her.

What a lovely photo! I love the perfect imperfection of nature.

(if you are having difficulty with sewing, you may want to consider using something like stitch-witchery - no sewing just like glue tape)

Again thank you for joining us this week.

Nothing can be perfect without an imperfection or two. I'm sure the veil will look lovely. If you end up trying to cut it out again there is a secret tip you can try. Dip the organza in a strong gelatin solution and dry flat, it will make it stiff for working with (don't iron or get wet until it's been washed out) It makes it really easy to work with the organza when it's stiff. You would of course need to test a piece first to make sure it washes out ok. I'm sure it the veil will turn out prettier then your lovely leaf shot.
