I just have to figure out how I can run this through the machine to make it go so much faster.
I did an experiment just to see if what I was thinking would work.
I braided off several feet and set up the machine for a zig-zag stitch. Well it’s not that difficult but I did have trouble keeping the edges together. There’s a few gaps where the stitches didn’t catch and when I took it off the machine I must have pulled too tightly as the braids start to roll up the sides. I think you can see that here.
But much much faster! Wow! As if I’m surprised, right? Oh Nelly! I have to do it again. (Can you get addicted to t-shirt braiding? Is that possible?)
This time, instead of trying to do this braiding/sewing as I go I’ve selected about 12 t-shirts and have been braiding one long rope. When I get done with the braiding step my vision is to just sit at the machine and go round and round zig-zagging until I am completely finished!
