Double Hems and Mash Ups

So yesterday, I started to write up a post about Bootie Mash Ups. Unfortunately, most of the links that worked last night don't work this morning. If they get their account up and running, I'll go ahead and post it. I've considered doing it now anyway, but it seemed a little mean, teasing you with something you may or may not be able to get to. I've got many of the songs downloaded, but am not sure how to get them to you.

Just so I don't leave you with nothing, I've put up a little (OK, fairly detailed, but easy to follow) pictorial tutorial about how to do double hems on a corner without it getting all fat and bunched up.

This will be extra relevant tomorrow for a post about fabric grocery and produce bags, but also helpful if you want to make a bunch of fabric napkins. This is geared to people with minimal sewing skills. When I started sewing, I had a hard time finding stuff for real beginners.

Added Note- I took this picture from a better angle to show how really flat the corner seam is. Ooooooh, flat.

So, there you go.

OK, I am going to add a video explanation of Mash Ups because it makes me laugh.

I don't know who this lady is (and I'm sure it's a joke), but I hope to be like this as I age.

Added Note- Just found this, more of Sue's stuff. She is awesome!

She is awesome! I wonder if she has grandkids that talked her into doing these videos originally. How fun.

I, too, hope I'm that cool when I'm her age.

Hell, I wish I was that cool NOW!

Thanks for turning us on to Sue, Wendy! :)
