Paired with a fabulous red and white check
Sure to becomes the next great event.
Fabric all paired and laid on the mat
ruler in hand and keep the cutter flat
Press down firmly and cut as you go
Making the strips that we will sew.
With the needle threaded,
And the bobbin full
If power is on
You are ready to go.
Right sides together
Feetdogs are up
Sew the seam on the right
One quarter inch up
The iron is hot
And showing its might
Bellowing of steam
All through the night
Pressing your seams
will make them so nice
a perfect piece, sure to delight
Now it is time to do it again
Left sides together and let us begin
By placing the fabric on the sewing machine
Presser foot resting with the fabric in between.
A push on the foot pedal and off you will fly
Another quarter inch seam on the other side.
Now turn the fabric so the right sides you see
And a press of the iron to the newly sewed seam
On to the third step with a quick little trim
with the rotary cutter on each of the fabric ends
Now they are even and easy to sew
A short little seam on both sides you know…
And ten minute table runners are everywhere!
Well all I can say is that I am not much of a poet but sometimes "the moment" just calls for a me to try.
So there you have it and I hope you enjoy it! A Quick little Christmas ditty from Jan!
