When I saw the post the first time, I knew it would be a good technique for my recent fabric purchase, however . . .
The 15 Minute Table Runner turned into 6 hours . . . :roll:
Well, I figured it would take me longer than 15 minutes, letís just double it and say 30 minutes . . . times 2 because Iím making 2 of them. However, there were a few steps left out of the directions:
1. Clean of the ironing board (involving shredding of paperwork, etc.);
2. Iron fabric (thankfully, it had already been pre-washed);
3. Experiment with decorative top stitch;
4. Change needle after breaking one by trying to do a decorative top stitch with the wrong foot;
5. Frog top stitching and change thread again (including winding more bobbin thread);
6. Trip to JoAnns for more thread after the top stitching thread ran out . . .
There may be more steps, since Iím not through yet. I decided to take a lunch break before getting dressed for my trip to JoAnns.
Good luck!! I hope you get it done this year sometime!
LOL...Love it. Too funny...are you my twin? Do you live at my house?
Thanks for sharing
that is so funny, and reminds me of the time my mom came over to learn how to make 20-minute pillow cases...took about 3 hours for her to get one done...it was a fun day :)
Oh, you are my kind of friend. I would have to include
"find a coupon" for Joann's onto the list.
Very Funny - I can relate!
OMG! It is so good to know there is another person out there just like me! Don't give up, no one on the board let me give up so you can't either! :)
Oh so glad to see there are others out there like me...good luck getting it completed....oh you forget the step that usually takes me the longest...Time out for lots of deep relaxation breathes...lol
Are you my long lost twin? This is my life. But the fabric would never be washed yet. Or the ironing board woulndn't stand up (again). Great post.
I love this ...It sounds like me when I started a project today...
