At least Jody Sears hasn’t lost his sense of humor.

His Weber State football team is 1 4, has been outscored 214 22 in its last four games and is coming off its worst home loss in almost a decade.

Losses to FBS in state rivals Utah (70 7) and Utah State (70 6) were followed by a 43 6 setback at 12th ranked FCS power McNeese State and, last weekend, a 31 3 home loss to a Sacramento State team that two weeks earlier gave up eight touchdowns to Division II Southern Oregon.

The Wildcats’ schedule “is like drinking from a hot fire hose when you’re thirsty,” joked Sears, whose Wildcats are parched for wins going into Saturday’s game against sixth ranked Eastern Washington at Roos Field.

The Eagles are thirsty, too, having dropped their second straight game in a 49 34 setback Saturday at Sam Houston State.

“This one obviously means a ton, because if you start out 0 1 then your back is really against the wall,” Eastern head coach Beau Baldwin said.

The worst part of the schedule is over for Eastern Washington, which is 2 2 going into the Big Sky Conference schedule. But while Baldwin said he embraces the challenge of a tough nonconference schedule, it’s a bit much for a struggling Weber State team that has 14 redshirt freshmen or true freshmen in its two deep.

Moreover, the Wildcats are starting true freshman quarterback Austin Chipoletti for the fourth straight game after an injury to senior Jordan Adamczyk, who left the program this week.

Despite a capable running back in Bo Bolen (5.2 yards insanity workout per carry), the Wildcats rank last in the Big Sky in most offensive categories, including 23.9 percent (21 for 88) on third down conversio insanity workout ns.

Sears sees nothing ahead but “teachable moments” for Chipoletti, who is 36 for 75 (48 percent) for 273 yards and three interceptions. Baldwin sees an offense with some similarities to Sam Houston State’s option attack that put up 556 yards on the Eagles.

Stuck in the middleAfter fast starts in the first quarter against Toledo and Sam Houston State, the Eagles’ offense struggled in the second and third quarters.

In 18 possessions, Eastern has scored twice, both TDs against Sam Houston. Ten series ended in punts, three with turnovers, two at halftime and one on downs.

Webbing Information to Sew Straps on Bags Totes

Many of the free patterns for sewing bags, totes, pocketbooks and purses call for webbing to make the straps and handles. Webbing is something that I usually have on hand so that it is here when a creative moment strikes but most people would say I sew more than an average person. Having webbing on hand is not like having an abundance of straight pins or other sewing tools on hand. insanity workout Only you know how much you are likely to use and how often you are apt to use webbing. My color choices usually will have black or navy but occasionally I want a tan webbing.

Webbing in many ready made items may measure less than one inch wide, but one inch is the most common size you will find in most fabric stores. Some areas still have a wide selection of fabric stores but many do not and in those areas if you are replacing webbing that is less than an inch you will probably need to find online webbing sources to order what you need.

Webbing is commonly found made from cotton, nylon, polyester and polypropylene. All webbing will unravel if the ends are not secured or finished in some way. When cutting a length of any trim or webbing, it is advisable to wrap the area that will be cut in tape and cut through the tape so that some tape remains on each end.

A natural fiber such as cotton will need to be secured with stitching, such as a zigzag seam finish. Artificial fibers such as nylon, polyester and polypropylene are cut with a hot knife or hot cutter in an industrial setting but in a home setting, you can mimic the results of a hot knife by gently melting the ends with an open flame that is run across the edge of the webbing. The melted material is not sewing machine needle friendly! Be careful to avoid hitting any melted fibers with your sewing machine needle.

Widths and Thickness of Webbing

The most common widths of webbing that you will fi insanity workout nd in most fabric stores are 1″, 1 1/2″ and 2″. Other sizes can be found at large sewing centers and many online sources. The thickness of the webbing can vary. The thickness does not tell tale of the quality of the webbing as much as it does the possible uses for the particular webbing. Webbing is made for heavy duty straps as well as sewing needs, so some webbing is much more heavy duty than others. The webbing that is used to make the seat belt in your car needs to be heavier duty than the webbing you will use for straps to make a simple tote bag.

When you are looking at a large supply source, you may find webbing with ribbon additions. These are great for decorative details when you are sewing. Don’t tie yourself down to the choices that are available from a supplier. You can make your own. Gross grain ribbon is a better addition than a satin ribbon due to the durability property differences in the types of ribbons.

To Create your own Embellished webbing:

Choose a ribbon that is not as wide as the webbing. How much narrower than the webbing is a matter of choice and the look you are hoping to achieve.

Center the ribbon on the webbing.

Carefully stitch the ribbon in place on both edges of the ribbon. Sew as close to the edge of the ribbon as possible. Using a seam guide on your presser foot, combined with needle position and keeping your eyes on the guide rather than the needle will help you sew straight. Webbing is woven so a sharp or universal needle is your first choice of sewing machine needles. The needle size depends on the weight of the fabric and the thickness insanity workout of the webbing. If you are sewing with a very fine needle, consider changing the needle to a stronger needle, but in most cases, the same needle that is sewing the project will sew the webbing to the fabric you are sewing.

A quality thread can be used with good results. Some sources will suggest using upholstery thread. If you will be sewing something that will be pulled and tugged on, such as a dog collar, you should consider upholstery thread but for most bags and totes, your regular quality sewing thread will do the job with excellent results. If you will be hand sewing the webbing, consider using button and craft thread.

When you are sewing the webbing, it is advisable to sew both edges of the webbing to the fabric, sewing as close to the edge of the webbing as possible. To keep your stitching straight it is advisable to use a guide on the presser foot and keep your eye on the guide rat insanity workout her than the needle.

The price of webbing can vary immensely depending on the competition in the area and the source. Locally I recently found simple, nothing out of the ordinary, one inch wide, nylon webbing at a fabric chain store with no local competition for $2.49 a yard. I came home and found the same webbing for 8 cents a foot or $0.24 per yard at an online source. Even with shipping charges the order I made was half of what it would have cost me locally for the same webbing. The moral of the story is to plan your project and shop around for the best deal possible if you intend to save money by sewing.
