Which is a new term I am getting use too!

Wrong side basically means the back of the fabric ... the side without the nice pattern on!

The right side of the fabric is the side you want everyone to see!!

Sometimes, with some patterns its like putting a jigsaw puzzle together with right sides and wrong sides lol

Whip Stitch is something that I am getting use to doing as now I use my sewing machine a lot I need to close 'the gaps' after adding wadding (Stuffing!!)

Wadding can come in a big bag that looks like cotton candy or in rolls which will be used more for quilting.

I hope you enjoyed this post :D

See you tomorrow
