Handcrafted with Love

Monday, February 14, 2011
Thank you for your messages after my last post.  This bug is still lingering, so I’m going to try and take it easy for a while.  What does that mean?  Sitting on the couch.  Can’t just sit there and do nothing, so I finally finished hand stitching this skirt I started in the fall.  All I had to do was add the waistband! 
Tamdoll Alabama Stitch Skirt
I hesitated for so long because I was scared to work with the fold-over elastic.  Each time I’ve tried to sew with it on the machine, it’s ended in disaster.  This was added with a simple stretchy stitch all around – and now I’m not afraid anymore! 
All it needed was some patience.  And love.  “Happy Valentine’s Day!”

  2. Altho' I like the look and it's a lot of work, I'm wondering if laundering it will cause fraying. On my Janome machine, I have a stitch which is meant for knitty fabric. I wonder if that will work for elastics? I've yet to try it.
