Not a lot to add to this grate threak. . . practice and patience. . . and enjoy all the frustrations of thread (the stuff that comes on spoils - erm maybe I am understanding interwebs speak at long last) breaking, needle threading, clogged erm what are the bottom thread spoils called... pricked fingers... sewn nails... and tension. . . Oh and iron every seam after stitching. . . and you will need a sleave ham (like a mini pillow) for the curvy bits... Have fun. And enjoy. My Father eventually learnt to make seat covers for 1950's Matchless' whilst wearing Van Heusen shirts so maybe it is a case of picking poison. Quilting anyones?
