Sewing: This Dork Owns a Zipper Foot
Yup, that's me right now.
Since I've committed to making the Weekender Bag and it has a zipper to be put in, I figured I'd better get my patootie down to the LQS for some help on installing a zipper.
Let's just say my first attempt did not go well...involving numerous bad words, throwing things at walls, using my seam ripper, and finally just giving up and taking it to the alterations place for them to install.
I wasn't ever planning on doing a zipper again.
But I really want to do this bag...
I've scrounged the seven seas for the perfect fabric....
I've ordered the obsessively long zipper for this bag...
So I signed up for a class this Saturday....and the supply list for the class includes a "zipper" foot....duh!
And guess who found the zipper foot in her Bernina foot cubby....ME!
Dork! Dork! Dork!
