Thumbs down Dumb sewing mistake

This morning I cut out about 4 diaper cuts from my jersey fabric. Then realized that I had cut them out with the stretch going the wrong way (not with the wings)....

I'm leaving town for a few days, I need a break from my sewing screw ups lol...

I did this a couple weeks with about 5 diapers. I sewed them anyway, but it was so frustrating.

Re: Dumb sewing mistake

So these will fit longer because they'll stretch vertically. Truly, anyone who hasn't made a mistake like this doesn't sew.

A little break sounds like a good idea. That's become my sewing rule -- I have to quit and go to bed after my first stupid mistake. The mistakes always get exponentially worse as I get more tired, so I save myself lots of aggravation by quitting while I'm ahead.

I did that with some fleece covers. So now I have 5 covers and only 3 stretch the right way. Ugh. I feel your pain.
