Sewing Mistakes. Grrrrr!

Aaaargh! Pressed my jacket shoulder seams. Stood back to admire the beauty ...... and realised that I had sewn the outsides to the insides, and it's black tweedy fabric!
Nothing to do, but unpick and try again. Bother, Grump, Mumble.

Thank you for letting me get that off my chest.

I'm peering carefully at both sides of my fabric before I join anything - I bet I'll still get something wrong.
I put in my first exposed zip today, all beautifully topstitched and it was just perfect.  Then I found I couldn't open the zip, it was just jammed shut.  Nothing for it but to unpick it all and use another zip.  I haven't managed to unjam the original so it's in the bin.
Life's too short for ironing.

Aah but - if you are making mistakes you are making new things, learning and most important of all - you are doing something.


It's amazing how many sewing mistakes can become design opportunities.
