When we moved into our house 18 months ago
we inherited a VERY brown kitchen
with the addition of our oak table the brown theme got way out of control!
I could bare it no longer
so on Saturday I nipped into Cath Kidston
and bagged myself a couple of metres of pretty oilcloth
(It did take a while to choose!)
I pinned in my hems and got ready to sew
but my sewing machine did not like the oilcloth One. Little. Bit.
it gripped to it like glue
I googled my problem
and came across three solutions
Number one: buy a teflon sewing machine foot
(google obviously doesn't realize how impatient I am !)
Number two: edge with bias binding
It is true, that as I make bunting I have the stuff coming out of my ears
but I thought it may get grubby over time
Number three: sew over tissue paper... AH HA! Perfect
and it worked a treat.
I am so happy with my pretty table
it makes my heart skip a beat each time I see it.
It really doesn't take much to make me happy!
