I lost my mind over these




I have been thinking about making pads, have talked to a very well known WAHM about using her design and purchased the Fern and Fairie patterns to play around with.

Anyway, there is a pad swap going on Nappycino right now and I didnt put my hand up. Carmen did it for me :P. After making twelve disgusting pads (Im not kidding, I wouldn't even use them), wasting over a yard of fabric and three patterns later I finally settled on the Fern and Fairy design with the LEAST curves. Alot of swearing occurred during their creation but Im really really happy with the result. Ive decided though that perhaps Im too much of a perfectionist to make pads. They HAVE to be symmetrical with perfect overlocking and the upper and lower fabrics perfectly to the edge (no internal fabric showing AT ALL). I get pukey angry when I think that Ive got it, turn it over and there is about 2mm of inner showing under the print. aRgH!

Back to sewing what I sew best...
