Jalie Sew-A-Long Day 2
I hope you can all forgive this late post. My sewing machine decided to give me a bit of attitude. The foot petal stopped working! It has been giving me some grief for awhile. When I start sewing it just wants to sew one stitch. Over and over again, slowly, then after a minute or two it runs like normal. Almost like it needs to warm up? Well last night it didn't want to work at all. After a couple of hours messing with it I was done!
Today, I turn her on and she is working like normal. Fingers crossed.
So, today we'll work on the collar. Did everyone get their pieces cut?
If you haven't started yet and need some guidance on knits to use, or needles, you can check out THIS post and THIS post back in the archives that touch on both.
Now, for our collar.
Do this with the other two collar pieces. You don't need to finish these seams, they won't show.
Now, I find when doing a zig zag stitch on knits it can sometimes bunch them up a little bit. Because of this, I chose to do a straight seam 1/4 in and then zig zagged the edge.
Ok that is all for today, but now that my machine is back to normal we'll aim for a morning post tomorrow.
If you have any questions leave them in the comments and I'll try to answer them in that post! :)
Now, I need to go and scream. I just heard that we are expecting a snowstorm tonight. Tell me it will end!
