I told you here that I'd been helping a friend whose wrist is pinned together and in a cast. She fell and broke it pretty badly, so she won't be sewing monogrammed tee shirts for a while. But she had a nice little thing going, so I'm being a good friend by helping when I can. I took a few days to get another order of tee shirts sewn up so she could get them to NSU this weekend.
There were several tees and four of these pull-overs. This stuff is thin and slick, so yeah, hard to sew. I remembered that my Bernina has a dial to set the presser foot so that the feed dogs can grab the fabric and move it along.
If you have that feature, it's quite useful when sewing this weird stuff. But you have to remember to readjust the dial after. Otherwise, when you work on something like the warmup pullovers or the fleece blanket, both of which are thick, the same setting can cause a pretty serious drag. You don't get very far even though you're driving at full speed.
It doesn't take very long to remember that you caused your own problem. Ha! Anyway, we are done for quite some time, I think. She's promised not to take any orders so that I can work on a few quilts. Two of them are Christmas gifts!
Everything turned out great. Well I had a slight problem with one tee...my seam ripper slipped and took a bite out of the knit. I sort of repaired it so one of the young grands can wear it as a night gown. It won't fit anyone else.
I'll leave you with some linkups and this picture of our cat. This is how we sun ourselves in Louisiana--half in the sun, half in the shade.
