No it doesn't! Only occured to me that it could work as I was sewing down the ruffles, obviously I shall have to make a second to test this out Wink

I made this apron yesterday for my friend (she loves cooking and tea  Cheesy) but I really want to keep it now! It's so fun to wear!

i ended up handsewing the whole thing, took me 3 and an half hours Tongue

thanks though, I'm going to keep practicing til I can get it right!
another thing, not sure if I'll explain it right but, it's harder to sew bias binding cut on the bias to straight edges than it is to make your own 'bias' binding, cutting the fabric straight (not on the bias) and sew it to straight edges, is that right?

I love the monster one!
and would to like to know how the blue fuzzy 'behaves' as well, love the ooga booga fabric!

Scrappy Sue:
have you tried nappiescovered.com.au, bubbaearth.com.au or gbau.com.au?
I've bought/had friends buy from them and they are lovely.
PUL is more expensive, but the only place you'll be able to find it is online, Spotlight and Lincraft don't have anything suitable.

thanks  Smiley

I've managed to sew the first step but I'm up to the part where you fold it back over the raw edge and do the final sewing, it's at that part that it starts to ripple.
I thought maybe it's because the chalk board fabric is slippery? I do generally have trouble holding my fabric to the right tension, but this I'm finding impossible! I'll have a go again later tonight, possibly try putting some paper in there somewhere... hmm lol

I'm sure there must be a thread about this somewhere, but I can't find it!

How do you stop bias binding/tape from rippling when you sew it?
I'm trying to finished the edges of a chalk board mat, so it's really stiff to work with, and I can't seem to get the tape to stop shifting!

Any hints or pointers in the right direction?

Thanks xx

when i saw them, i immediately wanted to make some for my boy! i agree about the shapeless boys pants

i think they'd be fine as unisex pants, i've not read the book though (thinking of buying it now.. really like the pants Tongue)

they look great, love the print
