Have you ever lost your temper at what you're sewing? "Hello, I'm a green bamboo cotton, and I'm being attacked by an angry seamster - please help!"
I got SO ANGRY at these straps today, and I just lost my temper completely. They were too long, so I sliced the one I'd already applied in half and just sewed it together like it was a piece of cheap elastic.
I zigzagged my best, but couldn't catch all the layers every time, so I just kept zigzagging till I did.
One time, I didn't even care and I just let that serged edge hang out there - hell with ya!
"No, no, officer, there's no problem here. This bamboo cotton's just fine. No ugly straps to see here - move right along."
"See, everything's just fine - not a care in the world."
If this shrug DID match, it would hide all the evil I did today to this poor cami.
I'm sorry, Sammy Cami, I promise to sew you next time with fold-over elastic like Sheila said. I'll never attempt self-fabric straps again - I promise! Now come back upstairs with me and I'll hem you on the coverstitch - and I promise not to lose my temper...hey, where ya' goin'?!
