I'm in the middle of a sewing class right now and learned two things about thread.

1. Use high quality thread. Check for fuzzies on the spool, if the spool looks fuzzy that means it was made using shorter fibers which can cause more tangling and breaking.

2. Thread can get bruised. Think of it like dropping an apple. Try pulling a good amount off the spool and try again.

Oh and don't forget thread ages so if its older than 3 or 4 years old...throw it out.

BTW love the shirt!!!

Whoooaa, I definitely didn't know any of that, but I'm glad I do. Unfortunately I'm almost positive its a machine malfunction:/

Oh herrow:D
I started making this shirt a few days ago, entirely handmade and a total pain in the ass ^_^
But really, it was entirely worth it.

The fabric itself was maybe a yard and a half to two yards of idkwhat, some sort of spandexy swimsuit bolt fabric, the same I made some shorts out of. The graphic is just black and goldglitter fabric paint, FREEHAND!

So let me know what you guys think!

Fun story, about ninetyseven percent of the way done with this, my sewing machine crapped out on me and I have no idea what it thinks its doing, but the thread keeps getting caught somehwere and tangled and UUUUGGHHH. I was going to add a hood,  with maybe another little silhouette character of Carol, but I really hate handstitching, so I'll just be lazzyyy about it.

Sooo questions? Comments?
