I'm afraid!!

Really afraid.

To CUT THE MINKY.


I'm making my niece a car seat cover, and using
real minky. Real fabric. Store bought and
everything, like someone who can really sew!

Usually, everything I sew is made from upcycled,
recycled, rescued--whatever you want to call it--
fabric. Those are all nice words for "fabric
I got really cheap or free, usually clothes or
drapes I cut apart to make something else."

See, "upcycled" is much easier to say . . .

Sooooo, you can maybe see why I'm afraid to
cut into double-digit a yard fabric, using a
pattern I made myself. Yikes.

VERY AFRAID!

Sounds petrifying to me-but you can always go get more fabric if something should go wrong. (or cut up your drapes). . .

Great things come from facing fear! Get everything laid out, measure, measure again....take a gulp....and go for it!!

You'll be showing us pictures of your finished (and fantastic looking, if you do say so yourself)project soon enough :) Can't wait!

I know exactly what you mean. When I get something more expensive to work with (not for sewing, which I really don't do, but for crafts) it sits around forever before I do anything with it.

I wanted invite you to a blog party I'm having to celebrate getting 100 followers at Scribbleprints, and thank you for being one of them!
