Don't get me down but they sure do get in the way of painting furniture :o(
Instead I cleaned my sewing space and finished Katy's ruffle pillow!!!!!!
I used a tutorial from Midwestern Sewing Girl and changed the single row to a double row for more ruffle. I also added a zipper instead of the envelope back.
The thing I learned is to make sure to loosen the upper thread on the machine *bang head* I was killing my fingers and I finally took out the manual to the old girl ( the machine not me) and set the upper tension and it made all the difference in the world.
I used the Hello my name is in pastel colorway by Robert Kaufman. It made it a much easier start. Chose the colors I wanted and sewed .75 in on either side. Then pulled to make the ruffles.
I pinned the ruffles to the fabric for the pillow and sewed over the lines that made the ruffles.
Fun and easy project and I am pretty sure some white ones will be showing up in my room soon :o)
An updated photo after the sun came out this afternoon!!!!!
This is the reason my photos are so cruddy.
Have a great Sunday!!!!!
