I read so many DIY blogs where they are sewing everything from dinner napkins to dresses. They make it look so easy: cut some fabric & run it through the machine. I decided to give it a try.
Christian’s mom gave me her sewing machine. Then I purchased the “Sew Everything Workshop” book, which is a really good beginners guide for sewing. The author explains all the parts of the sewing machine, what you need to get started and provides patterns.
My first project was a pin-cushion, which turned out okay.
My second project was to turn an old dress shirt of Christian’s into a pillow cover. It didn’t turn out quite square and the corners are a bit off. I still need to work on sewing in a straight line.
I think this is a good start. I’ll keep trying different projects and hopefully, I will improve!
