I hate them!
I was finishing up my boxers for the MPB Men's Boxers Sew-Along and as per Peter's instructions, I used flat-felled seams. I found them to be so difficult! Perhaps it was because my pattern (Kwik Sew) only required 1/4" seam allowances rather than a standard 5/8". I struggled and struggled with them and they turned out a little messy but I finally got something that had some semblance to a flat-felled seam.
As you can see, they are somewhat crooked but it looks ok from the outside. They are underwear after all so I guess no one will see them except my husband. If I say nothing, maybe he won't notice. They actually look a little better in person than in these pictures so I shouldn't complain.
It's been slow going on the sewing front this week. Been busy with work and still working on the house. I was adventurous and decided to make a couple of small pillows with some fabric I bought some months ago.
I had considered using some fringe or other decoration but I decided against it after I took a trip to Pottery Barn yesterday. Their pillows in general were very plain and without much decoration. These are a little smaller than I wanted but I still like them very much. The fabric is just gorgeous.
That's all for now.
Have a great day and keep on sewing!
