Sewing Pet Peeves?
IÂm not a very experienced sewer (is that a word?), but IÂve already run into some pet peeves about sewing (not to say IÂm not enjoying it) : D
1. Why is it when you buy a pattern, and there is more than one pattern in the package, they separate the numbers of the pattern pieces so that you have to search every sheet in the envelope? Piece #1 will be on one sheet, #2 will be on another, and #3 will be on yet another? All mixed in with the other pattern pieces for other patterns.
2. Why do rotary blades get dull so fast? (Actually, I fixed that, hopefully, by buying an ÂOlfaÂ blade that the lady at the sewing shop recommended. So far, so good.)
3. Who knew making bias tape would be so dangerous? IÂve already gotten a 2nd degree burn on my thumb. IÂm now wearing a (clean) gardening glove on that hand when I iron bias tapeÂ
Anyone else have any pet peeves? IÂm sure IÂll think of more. : P
