My friend Lilya owns a sewing shop about 20 mins from me with three industrials at the ready. I spent several hours in her store today working on the outside of the Weekender — the bag that will not die.
I am physically tired from the exercise. But, I only broke three needles at her place. And still want / need to go around it a second time. The stitching is just not close enough to the piping for my peace of mind. I want to trim back the seam allowance too so it wraps nicer (that Timtex is making the edges stick out I think). I could also try ironing the edges. My stitching is reeeeal close to the edge of the fabric in more places that I would like to admit.
So, this is going to wait a couple more weeks until I can get back to her store. I still need to make the lining.
I hit Joanns today for some quilting template. While there, I got this box for carrying my school supplies. It’s kind of pink, isn’t it?
Moral Dilema: I bought a bolt of muslin for school and home. Halfway home, I realized I was charged just $2.49 (minus my 40 percent off coupon) for all 25 yards. Do I make a special trip back so they can charge me the additional $35 or do I wait ’til my next Joann trip in a month?
