You guys! Omg y’all! Guess what? Go ahead, guess. Oh, I know, that never works. Anyway. This weekend while my inlaws were here they gave us our birthday presents early! WOOT! Presents- early presents! They bought me a sewing machine! Oh, yes they did.
My Mom sewed everything from drapes to clothes and anything in between but never taught me, not even how to sew on a button. (or to crochet or knit or cook, thanks Mom,) I’ve always wanted to learn. Every time I cant find a good set of curtains or toss pillows or crib bedding. Over an over I have wished I could sew. But, I’ve never learned or even tried. You know how I thrive on projects so this is fan freaking tastic!
I signed up for a class today and I just cant wait to learn. I am looking forward to it since reading the manual and staring at the machine is a tad intimidating. After reserving my spot in the class I coincidentally came across a blog post about Amy Butler patterns. And then, the top of my head blew off! I was going over all the things to do for my house and kid and hadn’t even thought of making my own clothes yet. Seriously, I’m so excited! I really, really hope this is “the thing” I am good at. I will know better around lunch time on June 20th. Until then I’m going to try not to spend a million dollars on patterns.
Do you sew?
