My Lazy Daisy – Review
|August 2, 2012||Posted by Kelly under Review|
Quilting home parties, how come someone didn’t think of this before? Well My Lazy Daisy did and they provide quilting and crafting projects through their online shop and consultants.
For this review My Lazy Daisy consultant, Amelia Brailsford, sent me a sample kit to make Raggy Topper Hair Bows. The kit comes with good quality fabric already cut, toile, gem pieces, and clips. I needed to have on hand a needle, thread, glue gun, and dryer.
The needle took some looking for, they always seem to hide from me. I used embroidery floss instead of thread since it is thicker and more durable. I followed the instructions exactly until I got to the dryer part. This part appears to be essential, since my hair bow didn’t turn out anything like the picture. I don’t usually use my dryer, I dry everything on a clothesline and since I have one of those newer dryers that won’t dry one small item, there was just no easy way to use the dryer without doing an entire load of laundry and putting it in the dryer for an hour or so. I decided to just hang it on the line and it dried, but it didn’t curl like the picture.
I followed the remaining steps. The glue gun wasn’t any fun to use, so I’m thinking I will try with fabric glue for the next one. I think it turned out cute even though it looks nothing like they picture.
The company does expect you to have what they call “basic supplies” on hand to complete the projects. I don’t think a glue gun is a “basic supply”, so in case you aren’t a crafter and don’t always have things on hand, make sure you ask your consultant when ordering what comes with the kit, because it isn’t printed in the catalog.
