3 things – creative endeavors

I gave my seam ripper a good workout and I am ready to restitch the straps and seams on my Making Backpack. Yes, the straps came undone once again. I am pretty sure it is because of the type of webbing I used so I have some new webbing and, thanks to Instagram, some new id as about how to make the straps stronger.

My fabric is pressed, bobbins are wound, and time has been set aside to make this dress on Saturday.

The Local Yarn Store Tour is happening this weekend. Will I visit a few stores? Such a good question. Stay tuned.

  1. I’m glad you figured out how to fix your backpack and I hope the fix is a success. Enjoy your sewing Saturday!

  2. My middle school sewing teacher had a big sampler in her classroom: “So shall you sew, so shall you rip.” I think about it every time I pick up a seam ripper. Which is often. 🙂

  3. I don’t sew (yet — I’m hoping to add it to my list of crafts one day!), but one thing I’ve learned from listening to people who do sew is that ripping is part of the process. I hope this redo is successful for you!

  4. Glad you have found a fix for your backpack and that dress pattern looks wonderful. Will you show your fabric and finished piece? I would definitely hit the yarn shop(s) this weekend – have fun!!

  5. Seam rippers can be a sewists best friend! I am going to tackle some Rose capris this weekend – you will have good sewing company!

  6. Happy Sewing! looking forward to seeing your Wiksten Shift. I’ve got BIG plans (two tops and a pair of shorts) – we’ll see what transpires (because of course it could all go the way of last weekend where I just knit and listen to podcasts – ha!)
