Earlier this week I had a little time on my hands so I read a blog or two, or twenty seven. I'm not sure. But on one of the blogs I saw a cute lingerie bag that the blogger had added binding to - very cute idea. I told myself to remember who posted this so I could come back to it. I wasn't on my computer so I couldn't save it or pin it but I figured I'd remember.
I remember she bought her bags at Target - a 2 for $something bargain. I was going to WalMart that day so I bought 4. Why buy 2 when you can buy 4, right? They were less than a dollar by the way. I would tell you how many cents they were if I could find a cents sign on this computer but I can't and I refuse to write $.99. Oops, I just wrote it.
I remember she said bias binding would have been better but she used straight binding and it worked for her. If it worked for her it would work for me, right? It didn't. Well, it did, but not so good.
Here's the thing I don't remember....the one thing I thought I WOULD remember. Who the heck was it who posted that? I've looked back at my reader, which had to be where it was, but either the title isn't what I thought it might be or I'm misremembering the whole thing. In light of what I know about my memory I'd bet I'm misremembering. Anyway, whoever you are, please identify yourself! I have questions and a sad story.
Edit: Thanks to those who had better memories than me! the blog post I saw was by Lori Holt at Bee In My Bonnet. You can find it here.
First I had no blue thread here to go with my blue fabric. I used gray, which wasn't so bad. Or so good.
Then I broke a needle. No worries, I had two left.
Then, this happened.
Wrinkled and pleated. Just like parts of my body. I didn't just say that. Oh, by the way, if you make this and you're thinking of taking pictures on your desk which has a glass top, don't.
A bit blurry, but I bet you get the picture. Trust me, you'd rather this wasn't clear. Ugly isn't it?
Now, if you stand back a ways and, as my mother might have said, ride by it on a galloping horse, it might not look bad.
And if you wash your dirty underwear in it the binding is going to shrink and wrinkle more because I forgot I hadn't prewashed, and it might even end up looking good. I'm dreaming, right?
