Vines - 50-50


So after I “unsewed” the fabric -

And the Supreme Slider(TM) - ;))


I got all four border panels sewn -

And trimmed - ;))

Then I realized that the pre-packaged bias tape -

That I wanted to use -


Is 50% POLYESTER and 50% COTTON -

CRAP!!

It's not the same content -

And may not lay flat -

If and when it's ever washed -

Unless I do a decorative stitch -

All over the dang thing - ;))

I may re-test the 100% cotton narrow iron-on fusible -

But it's so skinny -

It may not cover the raw edges at the seam line -

So I may be looking at making yards -

And yards -

And yards -

Of bias -

Oh, goody - ;))




Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
