I am really getting good at this not trying to be perfect thing. That's probably because I know that I'll never be perfect at sewing. Or even good. But I don't care. I just want to make some simple things for family, friends and oh, well, myself actually.
Like these loop scarves. Now, any experienced seamstress would be rolling around the floor, laughing hysterically. As much as I can't cut a straight line, I can't sew one either. And no matter how many tutorials I read or watch, I still don't get that final closure on the loop right.
But I don't care. I'm so excited about this. It's a loop! It's made from absolutely gorgeous Lotta Jansdotter fabric! It's mustard yellow and navy blue. And I made this. Using a sewing machine.
This one is great, too. It's made with Cloud 9 organic fabric.
I actually made one more as a gift for a good friend who's birthday is soon, but I'm not going to spoil it and share that. I just hope she won't mind that it's far from perfect, but I'm pretty sure she'll appreciate it anyway. Because she's great like that. She has three boys, works full-time and is the most energetic person I know. And she deserves some pampering, too. So I made her a scarf.
Anyhow, can't wait to sew another one. I have some fabric left and maybe I'll eventually understand how to get that last seam closed nice and flat. Any hints?
