I'm sitting in the car with Miss 3 (snoring her box off) waiting for Miss 4 to finish her day at school . So let's see if blogger works on my phone ... this could be tricky ... but what's life without a few flips of the coin?
Speaking of which, I flipped my own coin this week and stepped out of my 90 degree - perfectly mitred corners - comfort zone.
Yup I tried the ol' dinner plate trick ...
... and turned those sharp corners into lovely sweeping curves - ah that's better!
I made some bias binding (have curves must use bias binding), used a zillion pins and held my breath!
It turned out great!
I've tried something new with hand stitching the binding down too ...
More on that later ... but in the meantime ... what is the meaning of this message on the selvage of the fabric I'm using for the backing?
Whaaaaat? Surely if I've purchased the fabric I can do what I like with it?
I contacted Spotlight Australia for a "please explain" ... Pauline Hanson style ... but no joy so far.
Can anyone set me straight?
Linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday (if I can get this to work on my phone !)
