I have no idea where the inspiration came from to get one of these (perhaps from here, here or watching too many episodes of "Project Runway") But I decided I wanted one. The long standing joke at our house is "Mum! this is ripped and the buttons fallen off". And I reply "oh well lets take it to Grandmas to get fixed". So its time for a new hobby and challenge.
I was taught sewing as a 11 and 12 year old at school. And quite frankly I sucked at it then. Cooking was more my thing...I did get the Home Economics award for all of Form Two Ill have you know. I gave it ago last year with my mother in laws tutoring to make three Christmas present sacks. And they turned out pretty cool.I bought my new sewing machine with my flybuys points along with a new double pie maker (I'll save that for another post). And tomorrow I'm having my bloggy friends around to make Sock monkeys and I don't even own any cotton! or needles and thread! But not for long...I'm going to brave Spotlight fabric department and get some supplies today...already for the girls tomorrow
And I'll probably be up late reading the manual because even getting it out of the box has me confused! I wonder if the library has a "Sewing for Dummies" book?
