I cannot stand this stuff……
Why can’t I ever get it to work right?
Is it just me, or is this the most difficult stuff to work with?
Maybe I just grabbed the “Wrong” package at the store?
Or perhaps it’s the patterns that I don’t understand
Because it took me like 30 minutes to sew this entire shirt
Until I got to the sleeves….
The sleeves which strangely call for Bias Tape.
I shudder at the word.
Just look at that mess!
It’s driving the perfectionist in me absolutely crazy…..and yet, at this point I’m content to just be done with it, pack it up and move on to the next project….
Something without bias-tape.
If it wasn’t for this silly stuff…..
This would have been the fastest shirt I’ve ever sewn
This would have been my favorite summer staple
This would have been worth making all the extra cardstock patterns
(yes, I had big plans for this one)
And….This would have taken me 35 minutes instead of 2 hours.
But you know what, even the 2 hours was worth it when I saw how excited Sissy was to have a matching shirt for her “Strawberry Shortcake Skirt”
She wears them well doesn’t she!
And at the end of the day, I’m just excited that I got the button right. We can only learn so many new skills per project I guess….
And for those of you who are just as upset with this Bias-Tape stuff, won’t you join me for a short little viewing of this video….
Isn’t it grand what you can find online!
