I figured it would be helpful if I blogged about when I mess up, so I was going to urge you not make the mistake I did when inserting a zipper — ‘stitch the left side of the zipper tape’ does not mean stitch what is on your left since the zipper is upside-down (it only took me three tries to figure that one out)

But then I carefully marked the pleats for the top of my apron project into the hem (ie bottom, where pleats do not belong) of said apron — the hem that had already been turned and stitched so you would think I would notice.

Basically this blog is going to be a parade of idiotic mistakes. Watch and be amazed.
