A sewer I am not

I have always admired those who have the ability to look at a garment or project and recreate it. My sewing skills are not so refined. Don't get me wrong I can get by, but it's at a very slow pace and with my seam ripper nearby!
Well I am proud to say that I learned a new technique today. I made piping! I found an awesome video on You Tube that showed exactly how to do it. The video was about 9 minutes long and she made it look easy, so I decided to give it a whirl.
It wasn't too bad, and I am quite satisfied with my first attempt. I only had to rip out one short seam!!! I didn't take a pic of the piping by itself, but I will"show off" my newest project tomorrow featuring my piping.

  1. thanks for the link, I find piping a challenge. I've only recently figured out how to put my piping foot on my sewing machine :)
