breast pad sewing problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
ive been making my own breast pads, and they are fine but they always turn out all warped around the edges. why is this? now that summer is coming and i will be wearing thinner shirts, i want to make some more that arent all lumpy-warpy. i thought maybe it happened from turning the circlur pad as i sewed, and the threads were pulling but i just made one and tried not to do that and it still turned out all wavey... i want to make some for my friend who is having a shower soon---if i can get them to lay flat. TIA

1. Iron
2. Use a walking foot

The walking foot should make a big difference to the edge -- I don't have any lumpiness in mine at all. Also, I iron them to make them look nicer before I give them as gifts.
