DUH
« on: February 07, 2008 07:09:28 AM »

I'm not a very good sewer.  AT ALL.  Last night I got a pattern in the mail for the Burda Dachshund stuffed animal.  I was so excited and determined to make him.  So I cut out all my pieces just as it said and started sewing him.  He was looking pretty good.  And I was worried about the head gusset because I don't understand them and I basted it by hand then machine stitched it carefully.  But the head came out so pretty and looked really good. 

Then I realized I'd sewn the legs on the outside.  completely backwards.  @#$%@#

so I had to start over.  DUH.

lol We have probably all done that at some point. Years ago, when I was single and could get away with staying up all night, I would usually sew the sleeves on the wrong armhole in the wee hours before calling it a night.

Many many many more.  LOL

Hee! I've sewn a gore into a piece of clothing not once, not twice, but THREE times, inside out.
Before I threw the piece of clothing into the corner and cried.

My girlfriend has a mantra: "Never sew angry. never sew tired. never sew drunk. never sew after 10pm at night." Words to live by!  Grin

That's a good mantra.  Last time I tried to sew after 9:30, I nearly sewed my finger.  Still managed to get it stuck in the machine.

&^$*^#@@! would be my response to that as well. I hate when I work to sew something awesome and then discover I sewed it wrong.  Cry So frustrating.

i know how you feel. i've been sewing for almost 2 years and i still seem to make some sort of mistake that involves ripping major parts out  EVERY SINGLE TIME (and often more than once) Embarrassed

My sewign machine needs to have an automatic shutoff at 10 too Smiley And even during the day, I have been known to sew the same sleeve or armhole facing in the wrong way, twice in a  row, and I just cut 2 collars out now because one of them always ends up upside down.

I am wondering if this will be better now that I am on meds for ADHD. I have been beading ratehr than sewing,a nd I know it makes THAT a lot better (way less tipped vials of beads, etc).

Apparently I stull cannot typr tho. (left typos in for illustractive purposes).
