Sewing accident

Today I did something while sewing that makes it the third time I have done this. I suppose when you consider that I have been sewing since the 1960's that one is bound to do this. The first time I did this though was when I lived in Florida in 90's. I have since done it twice since I moved here to Roanoke.

I sewed my finger!!! Ouch!!!!!!

It really does hurt when you do this. And I am always amazed and stunned when it happens. Fortunately I did not bleed on my fabric. I was topstitching the front edges of my jacket and in trying to ease/smooth the fabric so as not to pucker, I just put my finger in the wrong place. Now I have a finger trolley and another gizmo that is designed to do what my finger was doing! Perhaps I will start working with them again!

  1. Ouch, I know how it feels. Did this myself 3 months ago (for the first time in over 35 years of sewing).

    Your jacket is so pretty. That fabric and color are vibrant and happy.

  3. You know you're a true sewer when one of your first thoughts is, "Oh no! Did I get blood on the fabric?" ;)

    I hope your finger gets better soon! :)

  4. Ouch on the fingers. I agree with Gwen, you were more worried about the blood on the fabric. We have to have our priorities, right?

  5. Oh ouch! I can feel the pain while reading your post - I too have done that before. And my first thought was like yours - did I bleed on my fabric? LOL! Hope the finger is feeling better.
