I am busy making curtains for my son, who has moved into the same house as my daughter. "This room is too sunny Mum." Hence the curtains. I bought material that was coated so that it would deflect the heat as well, but you can't make a mistake because once the needle pierces the fabric you have a hole. So, lots of hair clips was the answer.
Also, I have a machine finishing class coming up soon and I have three items with three different ways to add zippers, which cost about $3 or $4 each. I have been looking for the recycled version to keep the cost of the kits down. These cost 20c each but they do have to be washed and ironed. I will have to test one first to see if they are good enough for the job.
No rest for the wicked.
