I promised my husband I wouldn't hole up this entire weekend but I know I need to get some sewing done!
Today, instead of making a garment, I decided to practice welts.
Attempt #1 good choice to use cotton, not as good to use a print. Horrible attempt to stitch in the ditch:
Attempt #2 horrible fabric choice - it doesn't press and distorts as you work with it (it's a freebie I got and use for muslining):
Attempt #3 MUCH better. A couple more practice runs and I'll have it down. Although, if I were making these for a garment, I'd probably be okay with them!But no need to settle for "ok" when I know I can get "Good!" with just a little more effort.
Any tips for turning the corners better? -- Edited on 7/4/13 6:37 PM --
What a great idea to spend a block of time practicing welt pockets. I've put this off for years. Thanks for the inspiration.
You're sure getting the hang of it -- wow. -- Edited on 7/6/13 7:44 PM --
