The day of the seam ripper

I knew this wasn’t the day to sew when I had to bring out the seam ripper after sewing exactly ONE seam (with a zipper involved nonetheless). Yeah…and then I had to use it again because I managed to pin the fabric to the wrong end of the zipper…again.

Oy! 

But I have Christmas presents to finish so I couldn’t just NOT sew. So I took things slow. Still had to whip out the seam ripper several times more. Life…

Well, here is one of my creations for today. See the zippers? They killed me!

I made them for my niece and her friend. They’re 8 years old so the skulls are OK. The fabric got two thumbs up from my niece when I showed it to her over skype. I’m Auntie Awesome, thank you very much.🙂

Happy sewing,

Franzi
