I've been working on a summer sleeping sack for Ziya. Practicing my new sewing techniques from Rudolf's course. It's coming along a lot faster than my projects normally do, which is a good sign. But I've come to a little hitch...the zipper!
We have yet to do zippers in class and prior to this sewing course I was blissfully unaware there was even a foot dedicated to zippers.
When they asked how I normally sew in my zippers. I replied that 'I just plough through....a little like someone driving mono on the footpath.....or else I avoid them like the plague'. So, it's obvios I'm no sewing efficionado. I'm just hoping that with a little more practice I wont be such a total novice.
It's been fun getting to know my machine. I usually treat it like a hijacked car, driving it as fast as possible to get to where I want to go before everything ends in one big disaster.
It's quite silly to be terrified of a sewing machine really... so I'm very pleased we're starting to get along a lot better these days. Now for the zipper!?
