So to make up for the sad day that was today (trying to make leggings, giving up and making a new plan for that, and sewing what barely passes for a skirt that also isn't hemmed... sewing garments is really, REALLY not my forte, guys) I'll give you a photo step-by-step.
|First, I made a 2"x2" grid on the back of the pleather using a pink highlighter.|
|Then I used the ruler to make straight lines with a black Sharpie to make an X through|
each 2"x2" box of the grid in each direction, giving me a diagonal 1"x1" grid to follow when I sew.
|First line sewn, and it went really well. I started with a small line in the|
corner in case I needed to make adjustments to the sewing machine before I continued.
|All the lines are sewn!|
|And when I'm all done, I flip it over and it looks exactly like I wanted.|
