I'm currently working on my second sewing project. I'm making a reversible apron out of the chocolate brown and the pink print fabric you see above. Things are going slowly. The four reversible strips you see above took me all damn day to make. Have I mentioned that sewing is hard?
my nieces are lovely. i embroidered the onesie lily is wearing for christmas. hand embroidery was my gateway drug to machine sewing. before i started embroidery i didn't even know how to properly thread a needle. a year from now i plan on being a crafting machine.
My friend Christene is a rock star. She came over last night to show me how to properly use Betsey. We made the simple tote bags from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing book. I'm feeling less afraid of my sewing machine...which is a good thing. Although, I still feel like I'm reading a foreign language when I look at pattern instructions.
This is my new sewing machine safe in her home. Ive named her Betsey and I think that name suits her just fine. I decorated her case with pink glitter lettering to make her feel more fabulous. Hopefully we will have a long, happy life of making stuff together. As for right now....she freaks me out.
