“K” is for Katie

A quick make for my friend Katie’s birthday turned into a bit of a nightmare – I was tempted to try a woven fusible interfacing for the first time – seemed very pleasant to handle: light and flexible. Only trouble was – it didn’t stick. I managed to get a trial piece to adhere, but only by turning the fabric over & pressing from the interfacing side & this wasn’t a possibility with the technique I was using. Ended up having to pin every piece (121 x 2″ squares) & spend more time perspiring and swearing than sewing serenely. Moral of the story? Don’t try something new when time is against you. Still, Katie’s cushion turned out fresh & dainty in the end.
