Sewing: I finished my first shirt
Well, I finished my first shirt. It is a mess but it is my first shirt and I wore it around the house after I finished clipping the final threads. My husband was glowing, he was so happy for me. I am a silly head, so when things don't "work" out I make it "work" on some level and it is all fun time after that. My sewing machine's tension is all off. I noticed that is works on certain stitches and not the ones I wanted to use! So my stitches have strange tension. I tested it 30 times of a scrap piece of fabric and it worked fine, when I started on my shirt it was all wonky again. I decided to just keep it that way after ripping out the stitches 5 times. I learned a few things I needed to know on this shirt so now I am off to the next project..soon. Oh I will post a picture of the shirt on Saturday.
