Yesterday was a sad sewing day.
Don't get me wrong, I sewed all day. I played with fabrics I love. I started a new pattern. I revisited a pattern I had already used. I learnt to topstitch confidently. I had music on all day. And despite the rain outside, life was good. But then disaster struck.
Yes, Tension. It was wrong. I was sewing up another Wasp Bag and I had made almost the whole bag without a hitch. The topstitching wasn't quite as scary as I thought and the fabric was lovely. Unbeknownst to me though my bag was being savagely eaten by mounds of thread. Gasp!
|Oh the horror!|
|Poor unsuspecting victim|
I was disheartened to say the least.
I almost stopped sewing for the day. But then I thought No! It shall not go on like this. I shall stop sewing this particular nightmare of a project and attempt something else. That'll do the trick!
And then disaster struck.
This time I was sewing a Mini Tiered Dress from BurdaStyle with this gorgeous fabric - not even sure what it is - some sort of cotton silk or something? I had managed to make the entire top section and sew it all together. I had sewn together the top tier. I had ruffled it along the edge. I had pinned it in place. I had sewn it together only to realise.
I had sewn the right side of one piece to the wrong side of the other piece.
It's times likes these I'm glad I have a secret weapon.
Shhhhhh don't tell anyone!
