Look! First off, spot the beginners mistake,
Yes, I sewed the straight side on, insteadof the curved one....
So a little unpicky time later, and I am ready to go again. Needle down, Line up lower fabric (concave curve) with 1/4 " mark. Convex curve on top.
and lift the top fabric enough that you can guide the lower one along the right line,and sew, gently, just aligning them as they go to the needle and hey presto!
there is a beautifully matched curve with very little effort. so I just went with it, and pins can distort things, so that niggle is gone and I am so pleased with the result you would not believe!
See, and trimmed to size as per instructions!
One result so far today!
I have also been assigned my partner for the mouthy stitches, and am trying to research them.I think a lot of thought has gone into the assignments, as she looks like a super partner to be given, and I just hope she likes what I eventually produce. It is going to be fun!
I have had a quick look at her blog, and I have looked carefully at her Mosaic, though I will have a better look at it now, I have checked her on pinterest, and will follow some of that up too. thank you again mama, for giving me this one. Looks fun!
