thread bits // my dumbest sewing practice
As a blogger and pattern creator, I've learned a little trick that has lead to a really dumb sewing habit/practice.
The trick is this: Get the project done enough to get a photo, hiding the part that is unfinished.
Why would I do this? Usually it has to do with trying to get a post up before the end of the day, or sometimes it's a rush to get the photos taken before I lose my light. It's never because I don't want to properly finish a project.
Unfortunately, the result is that I have projects that are this close to being done. I mean, seriously. Look at that binding on the top one. We're talking LESS THAN TWO INCHES! The bottom project is a little blanket from an online class I taught a few years ago. All that's left is about 8 inches of ladder stitch where those pins are.
I'm sure I have many more that I've temporarily forgotten about too.
Friends, don't do as I do.
But do tell me about your dumbest sewing or stitching practice. What crazy habit do you need to kick?
