About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

SEW ....it didn't work........ !!!!

I was trying to make the gorgeous crinkled seam binding ribbon that everyone is showing on their blogs lately.  I sew also, sew I went down to the studio and grabbed some supplies out of the sewing area.  I didn't have seam binding, sew I thought I would try hem tape and twill tape.  It was worth a shot, right?
Well the re-inker with the water DID dye the tapes, but the crinkling part didn't happen.  I even tried the heat gun hoping it would actually melt some of the fibers to create a sorta crinkled look. NOPE!!!! But I do have some great ribbons that have a tea-dye look.....Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!

Sew, I guess I will go to the store and try to find some seam binding.

Until later, fellow experimentalists.....Gotta split......TFL!!!!!!
