Great sewing boo-boos (part 1)



Just how many times can one fail to see the words "on the fold" when cutting a pattern piece? As we like to say here at Chez Hoppo Bumpo: once, mistaken; twice, unfortunate; three times ... stupid.

  2. I hate cut-on-fold pieces - we've all confused them with "cut 2" pieces before, don't you worry!

  3. It is another one of those 'glad it's not only me' moments!

  6. oh, so many times. One of the big reasons for a sewing hiatus and for not using any patterns since my return.
