How does one fix the tension on a sewing machine?
What do your stitches look like? Are they birdnesting or loopy on the top or bottom of the fabric?
My rotary cutter won’t cut through quilter’s cotton, but it will slice my thumb with sickening ease.
11 of the 13 fat quarters I need for the quilt I’m making.
I just ordered the rest of the fabric I need to make the Kool Kats Kwilt present. I can’t wait to get started.
I finished my knit dress sometime last weekend. The fabric is an interlock cotton knit, and I used McCall’s 6697 (though I adjusted the fit and shortened the sleeves). The point of this project, other than to get a comfy dress, was to get to know my overlock machine. I used a 4-thread overlock stitch for the seams and a narrow cover stitch on the hems and neckline. The wings came from Urban Threads, and while they came out a little lopsided, it seems to give the dress a more organic feel (plus they straighten up once on my body). This dress was very popular at work :)
I got this applique design from Planet Applique. Adrian picked out the fabrics for the sails.
