evoL, actually

Oh, my heck.

Question:  Who works for hours on a batik fabric bag and fails to notice that she has sewn the incorrect sides of said batik fabric together until very much time has passed?

Who does this?

Answer: Me.

Yes, it is true.  evoL is in the air.

Le sigh.

For those of you who don't sew, you have to keep in mind that a good batik fabric is 'nice' on both sides. Unlike standard fabric printing methods that result in a 'right' and a 'wrong' side.  Which means, in my own defense, that when you are working with high quality batiks, you really don't get lots of 'tells' to immediately alert you to little oversights.  Such as the fact that you've got right/wrong issues.  Until much later, when uoy ezilaer emosgniht si ffo.  Such as the fact that your lovely new batik bag says 'evol'. 

Le sigh.
