Sewing Update

I think I am a bit intimidated by this project! I have never sewn stretch fabric before, so I have been procrastinating a bit. It has taken me all weekend just to cut out the fabric! Monday, in between sessions on the computer, I spent time finding the sewing machines instruction book and reading up on what it had to say. Yesterday, I took some scraps left over from cutting out the pattern and tried the suggested settings on the machine. After several false starts, I think I found the right settings and might just be ready to give it a whirl today.

Have a good day all.

Sounds like you're good to go. I am no help. Mike does the sewing here.

Good luck, sis! I'm sure you'll do just fine. (If you get too frustrated, bundle it all up and send it to me. I'll either sew it up for you, or get frustrated and put it away for safe-keeping with my shakers....never to be seen again!)

I suspect you'll do just fine. In fact, I know it. I also know you won't model it for us, but no doubt we'd like to see it when you're done. Good luck.

Baggie, your comment made me laugh. :)

Hi Reb,

Great luck to ye!

I can barely sew on buttons, so I envy you the attnmpt no matter the results. Although I am sure you'll be showing off your success in the not to distant future.

I'm pretty sure that if I tried to sew I would probably sew my finger to the clothing.

Reb said...

Thanks Gary.

Leah, do you think he would do mine too?

Sis, I might surprise myself.

Hilary, thanks, we'll see.

Kcinnova, I will show a photo of the suit when it's done, but I probably won't be in it.

Terrie, thanks, I haven't sewn anything in the longest time, I don't know what I was thinking.

Jay, I have done that! It hurts!
