I finally got around to working on the crib skirt for Tiny E. I realized I needed to match the print to get the length I needed. My first run at it met with mixed results. But back to the drawing board and I came up with a method that was good enough for me. So I thought I’d share it. Here are the two pieces I wanted to sew together.
I pressed one selvedge under an inch or so.
Then I placed the piece with the folded edge on top of the other and lined up the design. When it looked good, I peeled it back and used a glue stick to keep it in place.
I set the glue with a quick press of the iron. Then I opened it up and used the pressed line for a stitching line.
I trimmed the excess seam allowance away.
Then opened it up and pressed once more. It isn’t a perfect match, but I am rather impressed with myself!
Have a great day!
