It started with Spider-pillow

My photo
A while back when i worked at The Comic Book Shoppe (bank st) we had a regular christmas secret santa. The first year i was there i pulled Ted who had a thing for Spider-man. In one of those strange moments of brilliant clarity I whipped up spider-pillow. It was the old Spider-man logo with a round pillow in the middle and 8 3-D legs all made out of comfy fun fur....things have continued in this manner. This is my so called craft

Day 2

ok gathering sucks. its a pain in the butt, thank goodness for the
sewing machine, doing that by hand would have been my end. you can see the gathered section in the upper left of the photo. so here we go, its basted, pinned, gathered, pinned again. ready for sewing onto the next piece

whooohooo!!! it looks like the top of the dress. i'm already to make
the next top's gathers even more even. but not bad for a first go.

you take the interface and you take the back piece....add heat....

interfaced back piece....ooooh stiff.

Professor Carly says...
Interfacing is used to make a part stiffer and stronger. in this case the part i'm stiffening/strengthening is the back where the zipper is going to be sewn into.
