Not happy with the grackle case I posted yesterday- the topstitching looked sloppy. So after an hour of “reverse stitching” (thanks Elizabeth!) with my seam ripper I got all the topstitching out.
I realized I don’t really need any topstitching- the fabric won’t be going anywhere! So all I did was sew the 2 short side seams to make the pocket and voila…done!
One thing I did forget to mention is that I tried a new-to-me thread for FMQ. It is called InvisaFil made by WonderFil Speciality Threads and I loved it… it is a “cottonized” polyester that is silky smooth and it burrows right down into the fabric. The thread is hard to see so the major effect is the texture created by the micro-stippling and this was on a fusible fleece which usually doesn’t show texture much. Even I was impressed.
