Thread Starter 
I'm making a pillow for my mother in law for x-mas. Stupid me just sewed the thing backwards.

But the stitch is pretty and freakin tight!

You always get a perfect seam when you are doing it wrong - it is usually the thing that gives it away for me!

Hope it fixes ok!

Once I sewed a (short sleeve) shirt sleeve on upside down! Also I always seem to do my best sewing when the bobbin is empty!

lol. Haven't done that yet.

I got it off. But I got a little carried away with the seam ripper and cut part of the fabric. I think it'll be ok.. It's just a gift right........

I'm thinking I can glue it...lol. I have fabric glue here that might work. I could cut it off. I am gonna have to buy more ribbon anyway. I didn't get enough.

As long as she won't be washing it often, then the glue should be o.k.
I'd rather cut it off and buy extra to be safe.

Yeah me to. But the stuff was expensive. $10 dollars for 2 yrs.

I do quilts fairly often and have had to re-adjust things.I'd be affraid that after a few washes the glue would come undone and the pillow would fall apart.

It shouldn't fall apart. And I'll be sure to reinforce it with a little extra stitch there. It's just the fringe I'm putting around the edge that I cut into a bit. It won't look the best but it will be sturdy when I'm done with it.

OH, I thought it was the pillow itsself that you cut.
Yeah, it should be just fine then.
