Sewing. And lots of it. I started taking sewing classes a couple weeks ago. You may remember my sewing teacher moved. Then I moved. And then things got busy. But, I decided to start taking classes again. I had high hopes that my grandmother’s sewing gene was passed on to me, but sadly they’re still lying dormant. I’m not completely hopeless, though. I did manage to make this little hot pad and some other things. And I’m still full of hope that any minute I’ll turn into a super great sewer. In anticipation of this, I even created a long list of things I’d like to make. On top of that my Mama said she’d like me to sew her Christmas gift this year. Say what? I think my eyes popped out when she said that.
Some things I learned in class:
- a sewing machine that works properly is a requirement.
- rotary cutters are your friend. you need them to cut things straight.
- sewing with boring fabric isn’t as fun as sewing with fun fabric.
