My Pantry wall hanging finished today!
One good thing about miserably cold grey weather, it's great to be stuck inside - lots of craft time! I finished my Pantry this afternoon, and am so pleased with it. I changed the lace on the shelves from what I had pinned on it in earlier photos. It was too tizzy. The most tedious part of the whole project was attaching velcro to the background. It had to be attached after everything was finished, which meant I had to hand-sew the velcro bits through the three layers. The velcro on the back of the food items was machine-stitched on, and even that was hard enough. Velcro might be convenient, but it is a bugger to work with! Even The MOTH likes this wall hanging. He said "Don't give it away. Why don't you hang it in our kitchen?" Well, why not? The little girls didn't know I was making it, so they can play with it when they visit us!
