One of the piece had a hole in in, so I decided to practice putting a curve in the seam. I'm posting photos to remind myself what I did!
|I had to add some fabric to make the strip a little longer. The hole is visible.|
|Over lap about an inch and a half - right sides up for both fabrics is important!|
|Used rotary cutter to cut a curvy line. In this case it was all about the hole!|
|Remove the little strips and put the pieces together to verify where the top of both pieces will be when you sew. |
Then flip over the one piece and start sewing!
|Press the seam.|
|Verify flat on the top too!|
Yesterday we went for a day trip to Mexico. We drove to the border and parked on the USA side, then walked across the bridge! Once there our passports were checked, stamped, etc. Very different than what it used to be. The passport man was very friendly though, his daughter is now teaching in France!
Although there were a lot of people walking over, I guess they were either locals or on their way to somewhere else as it really wasn't built up to entertain tourists.
|Regular old (could be pretty much anywhere) shopping mall.|
We were there as I had gone to a dermatologist the other day and he prescribed Retinol-A. Not covered by insurance. He recommended going to Mexico to buy as it would be a lot less. So I did.
|The kick plates of the cabinet at the doctor's office were wrapped with metal. Looked nice.|
|While waiting for the doctor to come to see me I was entertained as it was a Pokeman stop so I got supplies - then I captured this guy too!|
