Sew, A Needle Pulling Thread

I've been figuring out my Three Dollar Rummage Sale Mad Thrifting Skillz (Oh yes.  Z) Serger this week and I'm getting better and better at it.  Still, it doesn't leave much room for error.  When you've zipped through a line of fabric that's it.  No do-overs.  No measuring twice.  Unless...

So, I made this binder cover for Tia and wasn't really wanting to start the project for the longest time and the time I picked to begin it was while I was having an absorbing phone call with my friend in Utah.  Turns out this was a bad idea.  On the up-side, I don't think seam-ripping through four serger threads is the end of the world anymore. 

But if after all that work I did to make it adorable and awesome it doesn't fit her binder?  That, my dears, is the end of the world.

  2. I think that was JoAnne's--in fact, I'm sure of it. I can't believe I had three coordinating fabrics on hand...
