So I am sewing or attempting anyway. I got this fabulous sewing machine from Santa last year and didn't open it until this Christmas when I was reminded that my warrantee was expiring. You can't break what you don't use right?
I started by making some killer curtains for my kitchen. I am now working on a project of 25 bags for the kids coming to my daughters birthday party.
Well let me back up- I tried to take a basic sewing class where you bring your own machine but I work at night and this was at a local Community night school so no go. My mom taught me the basics and I got the curtains done so I figured I would move on. Well the bags are almost done but not without a LOT of swearing. Today as I had done all my limited training had covered I gave up. The kids can get there favors in a brown bag for all I care.
But wait.... There is such a thing as an owners manual. I am married to a mechanic - we don't read owners manuals. We flub it and throw away the extra parts. Low and behold the directions helped!!! I learned that the bobbin was not threading right so it broke 1/2 way thru each seem.
So the moral to todays post is to read the directions!!
Anyway on a happier note I got about 8 more bags done and hope to finish the whole lot tomorrow.
I am a glutten for punishment and I also bought a pattern for some cute overalls I was hoping to make for her to wear to her party. We will see.
I will try to post some photos of my latest project. Horse bags for the boys and piggy bags for the girls.
