my second post on the same page of the stitch and botch thread. ::big sigh::  Embarrassed Cry

I was making a pretty tank top out of blue t-shirt fabric, and it all came out great. I was so happy (it's my first time making clothing from scratch). then I thought, hey, wouldn't it be great with black bias tape on the hems? so I go buy some. enter the fact that I forgot how to use bias tape, and don't have a sewing machine. so there I am, in the basement for 2 hours, using iron-on tape to stick the bias tape to the edges of the shirt. it looks, great, but when I go to try it on.... I rip the shirt.

BIAS TAPE DOES NOT STRETCH.

t-shirt knit does.

damn.

Awww  sweetie! That's a terrible thing!

I can totally comiserate. I'm another one who "can't leave well enough alone," as my mother used to chastise.

"But why don't you scream now?" Alice asked, holding her hands ready to put over her ears again.

"Why, I've done all the screaming already," said the Queen. "What would be the good of having it all over again?"
