So when I took my old cover off I noticed the manf. had just sewn a channel with a cord fed through it (like a drawstring). I thought I will do that as well. In my haste I cut my fabric and started my channel. Yeah I totally forgot the cord. I should have pinned my cord down and sewn the channel over it making sure not to catch the cord. I would have been done. Alas, I did not and had to feed the whole cord through with my loop turner.....
Yeah this tiny little hook and this slippery cord through all that narrow channel...what fun, let me tell you.(can you feel the sarcasm) I was so irritated.
Here is my naked ironing board laughing at me. I swear I could hear the chuckles. (See in my haste to get this posted I forgot to flip this pic) I need to learn to cool my jets.
Here is part of the tedious threading. Thank goodness you can't hear through these pictures...I probably really hurt my loop turner's feelings. LOL
I did finally finish the ironing board cover and I am pretty happy with it. As fate would have it, the batteries died in my camera right before I took a pic of the finished product. Of course that would happen. After I charge the batteries I will try to remember to share a pic. So do you have moments of sewing madness you would like to share or vent about? Feel free...thanks for listening to me whine. ;)
