Assembly Line Sewing

I don't like assembly line sewing. It's boring and tedious. It always reminds me of the few months I worked in a patio furniture factory, sewing cushions and umbrellas. BORING! I got to where I could stitch together a patio umbrella in under an hour, and I was one of the slow ones. To this day I cannot sit under one without looking up to see how it's put together.

However, Connor really needs new diaper covers. These were cut out a few weeks (months?) ago, and I'm now getting them put together. Next I'll do something fun and pretty.

Ugh, I know what you mean! I was cleaning my sewing room the other day and came across 6 yards of fabric I'd intended for boxers for my DS (even though I swore my boxer days were over!). I sewed 6 pair assembly-line style and was bored out of my mind. Ah, the things we do for love. :-)

I use a version of assembly-line sewing that's not nearly as efficient, but also not as boring (to me, at least!). I collect piles of projects that need the same color thread, at least to the hems, and sew each one to the point that I need to iron, then iron them all, then keep sewing, etc. Sometimes this really is assembly-line sewing (i.e., all boxers), but other times it may be some boxers, a tote bag, some PJ pants, etc. Keeps me from being as bored.
