Here's a quick summary of what I have done this afternoon.
|I finished piecing, I layered and I basted.|
|I then did a quick stipple.|
I never thought I would be able to say that a few years ago.
It just goes to show that anything is possible!
|I found out I do own a zipper foot.|
I got a number of feet for my machine and I don't have a clue what most of them are for.
I then promptly forgot to take any photos of my progress
because I was concentrating so hard.
So no sewing piccies.
No seam unpicking piccies. (Shame!)
And no zipper insertion piccies.
You are left with the final result.
|It's a little bit wonky.|
|The zipper only looks 'invisible' from this angle.|
|And I learned - the hard way as per usual - that you shouldn't buy zippers|
that are as long as the cushion is wide.
Harder to hide them when they are like this.
But you know what? I did it. I put a zipper in a cushion.
All by myself.
And it didn't make me cry.
Or lose my mind with aggravation.
That's kind of cool (in my not so cool world).
I made a zippered cushion!
I'm ever so happy.
