I recently embarked on a venture that I NEVER thought I would undertake.....slipcovers!
My sewing machine and I have had a rocky, sordid past....never getting a long very well....but recently, I discovered my problem!
I would be sewing for about 5 seconds and the thread would break.....the stitches wouldn't be even and I
was angry, frustrated, and confused......I kept following the manual diagrams for
adjusting thread tension and nothing seemed to work.....so I had a brain storm.
What if I started the thread tension at ZERO and worked my way up.....wouldn't you know.....it WORKED! The tension needed to be set between 0 and 1!
I will not even begin to tell you how to do the slipcovers....Miss Mustard Seed is the QUEEN of this
and I sat with my computer RIGHT NEXT TO the sewing machine....
I'd watch ( and re-watch!) the video tutorials and then embark on sewing it....Marian's
tutorials are so AMAZINGLY clear that even a spacially-challenged girl like me could follow them!
One of the best parts?? It's drop cloth, so if I made a mistake, I didn't
feel like I was ruining expensive fabric!
I am now working on my living room chairs!
