tie dye sky tie
my 1st time using a sewing machine (the wife's)
I disassembled my sky tie, took the magnets and elastic and an extra scrap of left over tie dye from my rig to build a new one.
Machine sewing was surprisingly easy to do, and the Brother sewed 6+ layers of cordura easily, but my stitch lines look like shit and it didn't help that I kept starting and stopping, so from about 10-15 feet away it looks ok, but closer up it looks like it was sewed by someone who wasn't sure what they were doing.
(That is a slight exaggeration, it ain't pretty, but it looks like it operates as well as the original; I will see how well it holds up).
