This little shrug challenged my patience as it was like sewing a cobweb. I managed to sew seams by putting silk noil bias binding next to the feed-dogs, and pattern tissue directly under the foot. After removing the tissue I wrapped the bias binding around the edges and hand-stitched it in place, completely covering raw edges.
The machine sewing was a nail-biter, as was all the cutting and fabric manipulation until raw edges were tamed. The hand-sewing was zen. And the sweet smile makes it all worthwhile. Even though she has it on inside out.
Because our weather is still so cool, I made her another long-sleeved shrug:
I don't think she likes it quite as much.
Happy day to you!
