darts are scary

March 22, 2011

So it was Pencil Skirt class 2 of three tonight and the focus what on darts.

Darts are scary and not in a Stargate Atlantis kind of way.

In class, all of us seemed to quietly and not so quietly freak out over our practice darts.  When we got to our real darts it seemed like it would have been faster if we just hand stitched the damn things.

And you have to remember so many things.  Start with your back-stitch.  When you get about 3/4 of an inch from the apex of the dart change the stitch length to .5 and finish it off.  Keep the line straight as can be.

Yeah – because just the keeping the dart straight isn’t taking all of my attention…. you want me to remember to change my stitch lengths?  Seriously?

But they are done.

Now I just need to get an invisible zipper foot before the next class.
