I had an epiphany the other day. I was going to make sleep masks. I had a ton of old satin material and some spare time. I hastily jotted down a pattern, set up my sewing machine and...
Sewed the wrong pieces together. Inside out.
After ripping that all apart, I started again. And sewed it together, without leaving space to turn it back outside right. So, I ripped it apart and went for try number three. That's lucky, right?
No. It looked like a blind, one-armed monkey sewed it.
I thought maybe the pattern was faulty. So, I checked the internet. Actually, my pattern is dead on. I just cannot do it right. If I wanted to, I would use binding and do an edging around it instead of just sewing it and flipping it. But, I wanted it to be simple. Easy. A boost to my self esteem.
I'm going to watch TV now.
