Fabric found at a thrift store. It had a high polyster content to it
What was your inspiration?
As a relatively new sewer I want to practice on fabric I find at thrift stores ( I just cant bear the thought of spending a lot of money on a fabric at this point, just have the results turn out less than expected!!).
When I found this pattern, I knew it would be the perfect gift for my Mother-in-Law who uses a stroller. Then again, I may keep it ;-)
What are you most proud of?
The fabric was frayed at the edges and I was concerned that I wouldnt be able to cut uniform pieces and sew even lines. To counteract, I trimed the pieces as I sewed them and it helped alot.
I enjoyed making button holes and sewing the buttons on the fabric with my machine. Actually this was my favourite part of the project, besides finishing of course!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Refer to the internet, YouTube and of course Crafsty for when you get stuck or require further assistance on a technique.
