Hood Number Two Finished

As the hood's to be reversible, I had to sew something in hand. It was the part around face. This time I folded half a cm of the edge and ironed.
Then I used the invisible backstitch I'd described already. You can see that I had to learn to sew with left hand - it's really slow when you have to turn your work after every single stitch. Just a little alternation to the stitch: when I went back, I didn't return to the same place where I'd been, but a bit closer. Thus I get less noticeable stitch and more places the fabric is joined in. I can do this because the seam won't be stressed.

I tried to iron the seams from outside. I rolled the seam with my fingers in the way I showed you yesterday and iron. It's a substitute for ironing the seams from the inside as you iron the seams into a form opposite to their natural one, this should balance. However, not forgetting is a lot better:-D

The hood. It's ment for a boy (a friend of mine) and maybe I'm a bit lost in it as he has even bigger head than my boyfriend:)

By the way, I found out by chance that it looks quite nice when I turn about 4cm of the hood around the face backwards ;-)
