I went 100% cotton, I dropped the feed dogs, turned the stitch length to '0', and really tried my best. I have 'enhanced' the photos so you can see the stitching more clearly, maybe I shouldn't have!
So it looks a lot better than the polycotton/polywadding adventures, but my actual 'steering' leaves a little to be desired. I didn't go pedal-free, that is just a crazy nonsense I will only use again if I should break both ankles and still have time to sew!
|The middle is not quite up the Leah's standard!|
|The back isn't too bad - less tension issues than before!|
|The back of this was cream, so I couldn't photograph it.|
|Another attempt. Quite good?|
So this week do you think I can say it wasn't a total catastrophe?
Oh before I go, I just have to show you this, having gone completely insane today at a Pizza Hut Buffet, (inc. ice cream, big mistake), we took a trip to Eternal Maker, (you know the one, the wonderful sponsor of the Pings&Needles Scrap Bag Challenge - I hope you've voted!).
I had a little splurge with the girls in mind, probably for Christmas...
Mollie Makes seems to have jumped in the basket at Sainsburys too!
Not a bad day eh? x
