a NEW ‘Nailed It’ experience


You all know about the popular ‘Nailed It’ meme, right?

Well, yes, I have my own Failed Nailed It experience to share with you 🙂  I saw this very cool exercise belt that I really wanted to make (at Pink Polka Dot Creations) because the arm-band that I bought for my iPhone to run/exercise with is ANNOYING!!!  Anyway…I guess I’ve never really sewn on spandex before, so it was a NEW experience.  That junk is SLIPPERY!  How do you do it?????   I even had a REALLY pretty blue fold-over elastic to add to the edges.  But I didn’t even get that far.  Do you see all the puckers around the zipper? (The zipper was suppose to be the easy part!  The tutorial mentioned sewing the elastic edge part was a “litte tricky”!)  I gave up 😦

I MAY try it again, but I’m going to research if there’s any tricks to sewing on that impossibly slippery stuff before I do!  Let me know if you have the secret!

Have a great day!  Do something NEW!…even if  you ‘nail it’!
