New sewing techniques: Sewing the round bits prototype 48

48a

This picture shows how little cuts were made and fold over to then sew them with a sewing machine.
Elements of experience:

Positive expected: easier to fold over
 Positive unexpected:
Negative expected:
Negative unexpected: hard to sew, is difficult to not see the cuts that are made
Time: 10min


48b

When it was difficult to hold the cut flaps when being sewed, the idea came to first glue the pieces on the inside so that it is easier to sew.
Because it stayed in place, it was directly sewed upon the elastic part.


This came with the problem that there was a gab, because it was sewed to far from the edge. Of course if it was sewed this way it would always have a little gab where filth can accumulate.
Elements of experience:
Positive expected: more beautiful finish
 Positive unexpected:
Negative expected:
Negative unexpected: gap between the two fabrics, see picture
Time: 15min


48C
The problem with 48b was solved when an extra stitching was applied






Elements of experience:

 Positive unexpected: a fun finishing feature
Negative expected:
Negative unexpected:
Time: 2min

Elements of experience:
Positive expected: no need in using an extra stitching
 Positive unexpected: maybe isn’t needed to bend the fabric in first place because this stitching covers the edge of the fabric so that it can’t fripper
Negative expected:
Negative unexpected:
Time: 10min
