Sewing a pouch - random lessons for the day

  • Lining fabric is a slippery bugger.  Now is the time to break the habit of a life-time and pin.
  • Is your zipper the right way up?  Really?  Are you sure?
  • The hole required to turn a pouch is larger than you think it is.
  • Chocolate consumption goes up in direct correlation to the number of times required to unpick.
  • Sewing faster when the bobbin is running low doesn't mean you will get to the end of a row of stitching before it runs out.  Though it should.
  • It is sometimes better to sew hopefully than to arrive.

Edited to add: Back from the brink.  Pouch didn't have to go in the bin.  Phew.
