…but so much cooler and I think a bit more fashionable.
Since Kira has sort of taken over my Ipod Touch, I use my iPhone instead. And since I’m always listening to an audiobook or enjoying my new “glee-nee” playlist (I love that list…and promise to post the songs) I always have my earbuds with me. Now in the grand scheme of things a tangled set of earbuds is not a huge but it’s annoying. Like a mosquito bite…
Is that the cutest thing or what? But wait it gets cuter…wait for it…
My little “sweater set”…Really, can you have one without the other? I couldn’t. And I’ve already cut all the fabric to make another one.
Now if you look closely you can see that the circle is a bit off. I didn’t go back and rip it out but I know exactly what to do differently for the next one. It’s off because I had a hard time keep the main fabric, batting and lining fabric all straight against the nylon zipper…slippage….
This was also the first time I’d ever set a zipper…ever…not to bad. Can you tell I love to sew? I really love to sew…
1. Use fusible fleece or fusible medium weight so the fabric and batting stick together and are still reinforced.
2. Use basting glue to keep everything from sliding against the zipper.
I think those simple mods will make all the difference. But all that aside I would say another success.
Thank you Erin for another great project and tutorial. Can’t wait to see what else you come up with.
So who wants a set for Christmas?
