I've been sewing a lot, channeling all my nesting energy into getting my shop ready for the not-so-distant future, where I will likely be sleep deprived and will appreciate a large stock pile of snoods so I don't have to scramble to sew up orders when I'm bleary eyed. I have four and a half months of sewing left (God-willing!) and if I can keep up the current pace, I ought to be in good shape come November.
Tonight I roped Paul into coming out on the porch and snapping pictures from the most recently completed snoods. I've been meaning to make these for a while, and I'm pretty excited about how they turned out.
When I first began sewing snoods the crepe and lace snoods were the hardest for me to make. They also happened to be some of the most popular. I really struggled to make them perfect. They took a ridiculous amount of time to make and I wondered if I should discontinue them. However... after over a year of snood sewing I've learned a few tricks that make sewing them relatively easy and much quicker than they originally were. And so I'll be gradually adding crepe and lace snoods in different colors over the coming months.
I think the lace and crepe popularity comes from the fact that they stay in place very well. The crepe band is holding the entire weight of my hair in all the pictures shown and it has no trouble staying on my head.
I'm also adding organza and chiffon (a few organza snoods are up!) as I make them.
Anyway... Here are the latest! I just had to share (and if I can keep my eyes open I have another blog post bouncing around inside my head that I've been waiting to post! I just keep getting so wrapped up in sewing! If I'm too exhausted tonight I will post tomorrow morning!)!
The first four snoods are the ones I've been referring to all week as my "Cinderella Snoods..."
