Folks who ordered a St. Bartholomew’s cross talisman to be created during the course of their booked St. Bartholomew altar service:
If you recall, these come in drawstring bags that hold the handmade cedar cross along with some other required herbal ingredients.
Well, the crosses turned out fine. The handsewn bags made of delicate and slippery material? Not so much. These just do not lend themselves to hand sewing easily. They looked like crap.
My amazing mother, God bless her, is bailing me out on these. She picked up the fabric and is going to machine-sew them. They’re gonna go out later than I expected, but they’re gonna look *way* better! So I appreciate your patience with these, and I think you’ll find it pays off.
