I love all the home shows that show the before and After, like "Property Brothers" and "Love it or List it", "What not to Wear"....there is just something about the transformation that has me there....but trust me, I am not just sitting and watching TV.
So...here is the Before:
I was going to put this runner in my shop but I just loved it so much and so....I claimed it.
It matches my furniture so well and the splash of orange....I just couldn't help myself. I don't need more runners but what is one more....RIGHT???
The giveaway for the runner kit is here
So...as I was watching Project Runway last night, I cut out another runner. I laid it all out. I would have sewn it then too but my machine is in the other room...
When it was over I began to sew it...and it only took 30 minutes if that much to do the top.
You are probably thinking...
Barb you are joshing us.
I lie not.
If you have it laid out and trust me, you have to lay it out before. I even marked my pieces because the first one I did I didn't and well...there was a big of confusion going on.
I learned from that and decided not to just pick my pieces up like she did on her
tutorial.....she might have been able to execute that with ease but this gal couldn't.
Then another little tip that I learned wacthing a tutorial (can't tell you which one because I don't remember)
when I iron, I attack it like nobodies business...and you are not suppose to...just put the iron up and down, no swishing it from side to side, you don't distort the fabric that way.
Inchworm Fabrics, if she has much left I would be
surprised because I am her best customer.
