So, you'll remember last week I was having trouble deciding which bias tape to use on my yellow stripes. The choice was between a tone-on-tone green print, and another yellow stripe with more colors mixed in. Stripey to the max, if you will. I think the votes in the comments here were pretty evenly mixed, as they were over on my Flickr. But then Liesl Gibson herself voted for the green! (you know her, just the author of our beloved book and the bestest kid's patterns ever.) Of course I thought that was a pretty good deciding vote. But then, I wavered again. You see, a certain sew-alonger is the mother of designer and blogger Jessica Jones of How About Orange. I'm pretty sure that was the very first crafty blog I ever followed, and she's basically awesome. Well, she voted for the stripes and I was torn.
In the end, I went with the green. True story, though pretty anti-climactic. I just thought it was funny how many designer-y opinions were getting involved.
