Last night I went to a good friend’s birthday party. We’ve known each other since middle school, and so even though I know I always wind up staying out too late and feeling like I’ve been hit by a bus in the morning, I make it a point to go every year.
If you’re still tying a knot in your thread to start your hand stitching, today’s tip will change the way you sew forever. Seriously. I used to knot my thread, and it made me crazy that half the time that knot would just pull right through, and even if it didn’t, it left a lump in my garment where the knot was. Ugh. This method solves the issue of loose weave fabric and doesn’t give you the “this was made by a third grader” look that a big honkin knot in your thread does.
This is a half-hearted apology. There is no organizational tip this week, and I’m sorry for that. Half-hearted because I’m exhausted and so entirely ready for this semester to be over, but I still have studying to do and an exam to take, so I can’t expend the energy to form a proper apology.
It’s that time again, where I get bored with my beauty routine and smear random grocery items on my head! Today’s random goo is: Coconut oil!
Last week I showed you the dress I’d made based off of my drawstring waist top. I mentioned that I had added some pockets into it, and a few of you had mentioned you’d be interested in learning how to add pockets to seams in a garment, so I’m going to walk you through it today.
