Tonight, two sewing machines are going to face off in Battle: Apron! Let's take a look at our competitors!
The reigning champ (kind-of): SVEN!!!
What, you don't remember Sven? Here, maybe his glamour shot will jog your memory.
|Ooh, look at those awesome buttons....|
OK, everybody remember? Good. Now, back to the program!
In the other corner, we have the newcomer: KEN!!!
It's going to be a battle for the history books, folks! Let's see what happens!
Round 1: Ooh, looks like Ken's got pretty good technique, there. I mean, look at him: he doesn't ever snag the fabric! When's the last time we saw Sven do that? Ken's action's so smooth! I just don't think Sven can compete, poor old-timer. Well, I think we have a winner!
Round 1 goes to: Ken!
Round 2: It looks like Sven is trying to prove that he's got some decency left in him! Ah, look, he's playing nice! I was a bit worried when he kept messing up that gathering stitch, but it looks like a quick consultation with the manual fixed the problem. Wow, he's sewing over 3 layers of fabric! It's gotta be the metal--Ken's smooth plastic body is looking a bit flimsy now! What?! You're telling me that Sven took care of nearly the entire construction all by himself?! If I hadn't seen it with my own two eyes, I never would have believed it! Ooh, sorry, Ken, but it looks like your time is up!
Round 2 goes to: Sven!
Round 3: Well, the match is all tied up now, folks! They say the third round is the toughest, but--oh, no, it isn't--it is! The dreaded buttonhole! Sven looks like he's willing to take a crack at it:
|I swear, this thing hates me. I could only get this hideous buttonhole done because my mom was there. Sven kind-of has a thing for her.|
|This was even a second attempt--trust me, the first one was worse.|
Ooh, that doesn't look good for Sven! That buttonhole looks pretty nasty. It looks like Ken's going in for the kill! What's this? *gasp* An automatic buttonholer?! Where in the blazes did that come from?! Well, I think it's pretty obvious where this is going, folks.
Round 3 goes to: Ken!
Well, it's been tough to watch at times, but it looks like this battle has been decided. After winning 2 rounds and the hearts of seamstresses throughout the stadium, the winner of tonight's ULTIMATE SEWING MACHINE SMACKDOWN is:
So sorry, Sven. Better luck next time!
Oh, yeah, guess I should show you what I made. Here it is!
|Disregard my retarded face in this one...|
Yeah, I thought it turned out pretty cute. And it was super easy! My sister found the tutorial here, although we made a few adjustments (or wanted to after it was done), so let me know if you plan on making it yourself and I'll fill you in.
