We have a zipper.


So I faced my fear of my zipper, actually it was the fear of the zipper foot. Just figuring how to get that thing on the machine was half the battle. (I have a old school machine, but it has never let me down.) I started with Michelle's glue stick zipper tutorial which is great, and guess what, it was easy, easy! I did start my zipper down too far and had to add a hook and an eye at the end. I can't tell you how many times I pass on a pattern because it has a zipper, but those days are over. Yeah! I haven't put in a zipper for 15 years, and all I've got to say is what's next.





I think you can see why Saga loves breakfast at IKEA. I do too, $5.15 gets you breakfast for three.

I remember sewing a beautiful full length wool coat and putting in the lining on the front instead of the inside. All I could do was laugh! (And then rip it all out and do it right.)I bet I'll never do that again..but it really was so pathetic, it was funny.....sew on, sistah! xo

LOL - our trips to IKEA usually include dinner, which is just as cheap and includes an adjacent playground. :) Saga's breakfast looks tempting, though!
