She’s a SEWIN’!!

AddComments

So I bought a sewing machine. A cheap one. A really, really cheap one. I bought the Singer basic sewing machine, and paid about $69 for it at Target. It gets the job done, even if I am new at sewing. It doesn’t have any of those fancy bells-and-whistles, but I don’t think I need them at this point either. These cute pants were my first project. I had the close supervision of my seamstress BFF Jessi to get these puppies done (before she up and decided to move to Chi town). Oh- and fleece- isn’t so fun to sew. It take a lot of patience, which I just don’t have in my system.Next up was this HAWT-MESS-of-a-skirt. Just don’t look close at it. Please. I do love the fabric though, and have a little leftover. I’d love to make an apron out of it, although I have no clue how to make one. Off to Joann’s!This was the last skirt I made. I screwed it up royally too, but you can’t tell from this side (who knew you needed to hem cotton?) I also made it waaaaay too big for the person intended, so it makes a great dress-up skirt. I learned a lot from this one, so when I go to make Jen’s, it will look a lot nicer. And this? Well, it’s a close-up of the fabric. I love, love, love the colors in this skirt!!

So this project, I give myself a pass-fail-pass (with exception).
