LEARN TO SEW: CHECK!
I’M BACK!!! So the internet has been out all week & I have been going bananas. It is not easy to get your blog fix on the iPhone only. We have stayed busy though. My mom has come into town for Easter & she has helped me check another goal off the list! I have learned to sew on my 1941 Singer Sewing Machine!!! Have I mastered it, no. But I did make my daughter a dress… with no pattern. So I consider this a success! While I don’t plan on signing up for Project Runway anytime soon, I am pretty pleased with what we have accomplished this week.
This will not be a tutorial, as I am still not sure if I could do it again by myself… But it is a step in the right direction. If I could make a toddler dress, surely I can make a Pillow Cover… right?!?!
Here is the back… Again, not too bad for a first attempt.
I was astonished with how smooth & quiet this machine was. But more importantly for the designer in me, I cannot get over how stunning this machine is. You will not find any machine as gorgeous as this one in stores today. And for the functions I need, this vintage beauty is my perfect fit!
More posts to come!!! How did we survive before the internet?
