Also love/hate: finishing

The idea of finishing projects so they’re ready to wear or use: love.

The act of the picky work it takes to actually finish them: ugh, despise.

Hemming, clipping threads, binding edges. Takes FORever. SO easy to screw the whole thing up at this point.

I’ll try anything to make finishing go faster and better. So I used machine basting to mark foldlines on the hems of these little pants. Marked a spot on my machine for 1″ or 1.5″ and then basted and basted.

The hemline folded really evenly over the stitching. And the rest of the hem was an easy tuck under.
