Good Grief!

I swear, I haven't been drinking. However, this might be a warning that when one is feeling under the weather that maybe the sewing table is not the place to recover.  


Yes, I really did sew the pocket upside down and the wrong pocket piece. And after I ripped out the seam and thought things were going along smoothy...


I wasn't willing to give up and sew the side seams and remove the pockets.  Well, because they're pockets!




What can I say, I'm not perfect.  

Happy Sewing!

    1. I don't know what's up with me, I'm making all sorts of sewing bloopers lately... scheduled to be confessed later this week.

  2. It has happened to all of us. At least no one will ever see it.

    1. Thankfully, the repairs are unseen.

  3. Great save! Although my heart sunk when I saw the original situation - been there and totally understand the pain of that realization. :\ Did you also go through the irrational internal discussion of how you could make an upside-down wrong-sided pocket work too?

    1. Thanks. No, I was in utter shock and disbelief that I could do such a thing after I marked the wrong sides of my fabric with a big ol' X and still, I managed to sew it the wrong way and side.
