Today’s day 2 of our Gable sew-a-long! If you’re not doing the optional fly, you have a freebie day today; you’re welcome to work ahead, use the time to cut out additional pairs, or sew up something you’ve been putting off (I promise I won’t tell if you spend day 2 selfish sewing!!).
- when you cut the fabric pieces for the fly, you need mirror images
- be consistent with your seam allowance
- do not skip steps when constructing your binding; you run the risk of mistakes and/or a sloppy finished product
- seam allowances are included
If you’re still having a hard time with binding, we do have a blog post here with additional tips.
Want to sew with me?
If you have questions about attaching your binding or putting your optional fly pieces together, you are always welcome to post in our SAL group so we can help you!
