Well , shoot! Not just my sewing adventure - but also my camera is doing the funky chicken.
I had cut out the fabric and placed it one the stabilizer and it had bunched up the fabric and ruined it. I decided not to waste anymore embroidery thread.
This was my second try and both the camera and the second design are acting very rude to me so I considered it a lost cause . Another battle lost..
HUMMMM??? A third try - defeated -but at least my camera is playing nicer! It might not be a total loss yet. I have learned that you might have problems when it comes to centering your design on a book mark fabric?
I have learned that you need to have more stabilizer under the design.
I have learned that even when you think you are working on a simple design - it can take a mind of its own and go crazy on you.
I have also learned that it can even be difficult to sew a simple satin stitch around the marker as the fabric does the - " hootchic - kootchie - and making stitches look like a 5 year old ?
I have learned that it was a cute idea - but one that won this part of the war. I am just going to keep this one for me - shoot - if I didn't make mistakes - I would never give myself any gifts. I will put this in the book I am attempting to read and smile at it everytime I see it because even if it was a problem - I did get to play in my sewing room and that is my favorite space to play in. ~smile~
