Remember my 2nd attempt at a little braided t-shirt rug I was working on? Yes…that one. Okay, okay. So I got up to the top of the stairs today and I didn’t feel like coming down because it hurts, so I decided to sit at the sewing machine instead and psyche myself up to go ahead and zig zag this new batch of braid that’s been sitting up in the sewing room since March. Well beyond the due date! All couch and chair slipcover aside!
So look! Isn’t it beautiful?
My machine is not in a cabinet so I was a little worried about not having a completely flat surface but it did work! A flat surface would be the best for this situation but I just wanted you all to know that you CAN do this just with your machine on a table top like mine. I do however have my extension table attached that came with the machine.
One of those bigger acrylic extension tables would probably work even better but I’ve just never ordered one. I know they can get pricey but it would be something to look into.
I love how this rug is coming out. I have a total of 10-12 t-shirts in all shades of blues and greens that I want to use in this. I’m about half way. Friends…my spirits are looking up!
