Another take on Kwik Sew 3790, this time in a lovely rayon knit. The top sewed up super quick. Too quickly in fact. There I was, zipping right along (zigzag, not serger) and Wham!
Of course I jumped, not being used to sewlestial voices speaking to me directly, and ended up snipping a hole in the face of the top while I was trimming the binding.
The salty language of a former hash house harrier spewed forth. I was not happy. Not pleased at all.
I tell you, some days, those voices just have to know when to be quiet!
Once I calmed down and took a second look, it wasn’t that bad. I thought I could patch it, so out came the Bo Nash powder and a teflon ironing sheet. I tore a hole in the middle of a post-it note to make a template, so the powder wouldn’t get all over, and sprinkled some on the back. Lifted the paper away, and very gently laid down a scrap of fabric over the hole, followed by the teflon sheet.
I’ve worn the top, and you can’t tell there’s a hole in it. The fabric being a bright, active print helps, I am sure.
Is there a moral to this story? Besides the fact that I still know how to swear like a sailor?
- Don’t let the sewing goddesses interrupt you when you’re concentrating
- A little patch goes a long way.
