Thanks to Fi, I have now mastered pvc - not that I had ever tried it before - but thanks to Fi's wonderful tutorial on 'being the boss' of the pvc - I am now an accomplished sewer of pvc.
So guess what, everything in sight will now, of course, have to be pvc'd!!!! My mind is ticking over all the things that I could do with it.
Anyway, I made a little kids organiser to start with and I am really happy with how it came out. It didn't pucker, bubble or anything. It really was quite easy to work with.
For those interested in buying some of this, another great place to buy the stuff is from Bunnings - it is about $4.80 a metre (slightly cheaper than Spotlight and it is the same stuff).
Last week my trustee 18year old Janome went in for a service, and the news was not good - the button holer was jammed inside and the new part would cost $220.00 - not worth fixing - so it was very sad that I had to buy a new one.
I now have a new Janome which I am slowly getting used to - the added bonus with the new one is that I have a choice of three different types of button holes (I only had one before) . And the new one has the button hole stitch for applique which I have always wanted. So, here is the result of using that particular stitch. I can't believe how simple it is to use.
So now everything that isn't nailed down will now be pvc'd and appliqued until I can find something else I can become infatuated with. Look out kids!!!!
