Sparkle organza – ugh!

25 Oct

Really – whose ridiculous idea was this?



Really awful, horrible, stupid idea. Those pretty little glittery bits are chunks of something really solid, which are chewing up my scissors and machine needles. They make the fabric hang weirdly, so I ended up chopping off huge amounts of length. The serger needles bump around them so the rolled hem I was making kept pulling off the fabric, making little loops that are perfect for me to catch a heel in.  All in all, fabric purchase fail.

Adding insult to injury is the fact that I found this out the last time I used it and blithely ignored all those problems in my desire to reuse the fabric for speed and cost-savings. The best part is that it is now chopped up into so many small pieces, I will never again be able to try to use it!
