Hi all, I am attempting to make some cushions for the patio furniture. I am making little straps to sew into the corners for tying to chairs. One end of the strap is open, the other is sewn shut. I have one of those little turny things, you know, the long metal stick with the head on it with a little hook. I seem to be having a dickens of a time getting the darn thing started. Once it does go, it's pretty smooth, it's just the getting it started that is throwing me. Any advice? Thanks, Joni :bang:
