Why I hate Zippers and Hems

I think I have mentioned this before but I HATE doing hems and putting in zippers. For a while I thought it was just because I didn’t know how to do it right or I just wasn’t good at hems or zippers. Nope, that’s not it! I finally have figured out why I hate them….


I get too excited about finishing what I am making.


By the time I get to the zipper or hem of a garment, that is all I have left to do. I just want to finish it and wear it. I don’t want to take the extra time to go through all the steps I should to make sure that it’s correct. I rush through, swear a lot because it’s not doing what I want it to and then it ends up looking like crap.


So, from now on I will take the time to hem and put zippers in with all the steps. I will not skip any. Hopefully I will get over my hatred soon.
