Sewing mis-haps

Grr. Grumble, grumble, mutter, complain.

That carseat cover I mentioned a couple of days ago? It's almost on it's way to being chopped up into something else. That's how sick of it I am. Today I monkeyed around with the canopy- spending far too long trying to get it right... And when, finally, after a couple hours of muttering under my breath and fighting with bias tape... I was ready to try it out.

So, I put the plastic parts back in from the original, excited to be nearly finished- and discovered it does NOT. fit. Somewhere, somehow in cutting the pieces patterned from the original canopy I made some wrong cuts.

Oooh, oh, oh let's just keep this kid-friendly and say I was not impressed. The thing is- it will have to do. I'm not starting over. I'm much too stubborn for that. Perhaps when the steam billowing over my head blows over I might try to modify it a bit, but more than likely it will stay as it is.

At least the actual cover part is working. So far. Still have to put in holes for the belts which I've been putting off till last because I'm terribly afraid of ruining it.

Ah well. You win some, you lose some, right?

Does this mean you're not taking orders then? :)
You sure got the crafty knack! I wouldn't dare attempt something as complex as a car-seat cover 1 month before my due date. But then again, I can barely sew a straight line. Good luck with it! I can't wait to see it!
