I think my biggest problem with getting it even (not the stitching, so much as the actual hem & cloth itself) is that I just cant figure out how to make it "square". I dont know if I am saying it right... argh! But the material... crap, its tough to explain...
I assume the factory edge is straight.. so that leaves me with 3 uneven sides to cut. Those being uneven is going to be even more pronounced when I make my hem... and even MORE pronounced when the hem is rolled. Maybe I am being too anal.. but I want it to be right, not some skewed crooked POS!
