When a Good idea....

...goes really wrong....

..this is what I mean.

I love to sew. I love to make things for my home and for my family.
(they tell me that I sew cute and fun things,
sometimes beautiful things, sometimes heirloom things).

I was in the process of making a few 4th of July decorations for Aubry's home.

I pulled out my scrap box of patriotic fabrics and thought
I would "whip up" a 1/2 dozen drink coasters.
It was not difficult until the finished edge (the binding).

Well, I learned that you cannot, I repeat, you cannot sew binding on a small
item such as a coaster, take a look at the back and have a good laugh!

Star & Confetti Banners
This is what Aubry's getting that was fun to make.
