Need for Speed

This morning my dear sewing friend was putting me to the test.  I was being timed to see just how fast I could cut and sew a pair of pj pants (shorts).  OK, so the thing is I could not use pins to pin my pattern to my fabric...trying to do as the professionals do.  That wasn't so hard.  I used canned veggies and it worked out perfect.  I didn't mind the cutting as much as I usually do.  I hate having to get the pattern ready, then prep the fabric, then pin the pattern to the fabric, THEN cut and on and on it goes.  So cutting took maybe 10 minutes.  Then I headed to the serger and machine.  I made these two pair of pants 99% on the serger and 1% on the sewing machine and that was absolutely fun to me.  I've had the serger for several years and only used it maybe twice because I really didn't know what to do with it or what it could do. . . OH BUT I DO NOW!!! ;-)
So in under an hour I cut, serged, hemmed, all in under an hour and 5 minutes to put the elastic in them.  My nephew is wearing them now as he lays down to take a nap.


          


Now to make a few pair for my son!!!

GRATEFUL:  For my family who is thrilled with each new step I take towards improving my skills and preparing for my shop.

SCRIPTURE:  I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength.  Phil. 4:13
