I am trying my hands at sewing curves with the Drunkard's Path die.
Setting the two simple pieces straight.
and the sewing is not that good. Some puckering occurred. Try again.
I am sewing so slowly that the machine stalls every now and again. It reminds me of the first time I sat behind the wheel of my boyfriend's car. I said, "Hey, look. I got this. This is easy," as the car was slowly rolling down the street. He looked at me with a funny face and said, "You have to press down on the gas pedal. This is idle speed!!" Haha. I married that guy. :^D
Anywho! Here are the others.
Okay, so I'm getting better. By next Saturday, I'll be able to sew these without pins. Haha! I'm such a joker!
The other dies are the Diamond to make Tumbling Blocks and this one.
I'll keep practicing with one curve before tackling three curves. This is my challenge for 2023.
Thanks again, Cathy, I just can't say this enough. May blessings fall upon you too.
I manage to make some wee sewing as leader-enders.
Last week, we had our Artisanat meeting. I came home with some gifted scrap bags. Someone sewed triangles of the same fabric together. I am slowly taking them apart to turn them into something else. I do this during my lunch break at work.
|Done and pressed|
|Waiting to be press|
|Still plenty for my lunches next week|
There are a lot of two colours HSTs also. Of all sizes, it seems.
I received another panel sewn to a piece of cheap batting. I used the first one as the backing for Stars in Blue. I guess the person liked what I did with her panel and decided to give me the pink one too. Shall I make a Stars in Pink?
Today I am sewing with the Artisanat ladies. We were commissioned to make adult bibs for some residences. 60 bibs were called. More about this in my next post.
Have a lovely day.
