What was suppose to be a new laptop sleeve for my husband turned into wall art for our home. Oops.
Is it perfect? No, not at all. I struggled in some areas to get a few points to align perfectly, since that is key with triangles. It didn't matter how many pins I placed, it still shifted a bit. And can you believe that I FORGOT I own a walking foot??? Yeah, it totally slipped my mind when working on this project. I guess that's what happens when you get too excited to work on a new sewing machine??
The dark gray Free Spirit fabric has more stretch than the Kona Cottons, and that is why it puckered and stretched out a little as well. That's my guess anyways. I did starch these babies too using Mary Ellen's Best Press. I will not use Free Spirit solids with Kona Cotton solids again, unless precision did not matter. Lesson learned.
Overall, I find this piece amazing. I love how flat it is (minus the ripples). I love how crisp it looks. I just love it. What do you think?
I left it unfinished and framed it in a white frame that I had around the house. This is a temporary spot for now. I know it will float around the house since I like to change things up frequently. And if I get the itching to use it, I can simply remove it from the frame.
Do you frame things you've sewn?
