When I woke up this morning I stepped out onto the porch to check my apple/crabapple tree in bloom. Last year I waited too long for the perfect picture and it turned green on me over night. So, I am attempting to be sneaky and capture the blooms.
I found a piece of green that I could use and started making the cuts for my strips.
It turned out that my little bias tape maker which says 1/2 " just is not wide enough for the project. From using that red I decided that I enjoyed working with that size better. Boy, "Karma" must have over heard me say something about enjoying a project -so everything I did was a disaster. The two projects that should have been my most enjoyable turned into two disasters. Well, maybe "Lessons" is just that -lessons -not a warrenty of perfection.
I cut my strips two inches --then ironed them down the middle to give me a crease line. Next I folded each side into the center and that was how I made my very own bias.
This size green bias is working good on this monster size mug rug. Maybe I should call it a "Plate - rug"! LOL
I can't help myself , I really like it now that it is finished.Yes, it is a big size -maybe that is for a big appetite?
Then this one should have been my best one-but it did not end up that way. I made so many mistakes. It was like I was Hexed. LOL It was more of my "drunk-sewing" as I tried my best to hold a steady hand and the next thing I knew I was on the wrong side . Yes, my eyes are partly to blame . I need new glasses bad- but you know how it is ? :) Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL
Love to all
