Sewing Class-Take 1

I've been obsessed with craft blogs as I've said in previous posts...

So in response to this I decided to take a real sewing class so I would know what I was doing and not just act like I did...Acting like you know how to sew works for square projects - i.e. Curtains, napkins, etc... However when you want crafts to look nice and give them away as presents without someone wondering why their napkin looks like a trapezoid and not a square (not really but you get my point) you need to know what you are doing.

My best friend and I decided to do this together. She herself has had her new (awesome) Singer Sewing machine for 3 years and hasn't really known how to completely work it.

So last night was our first class....And normally in my world something ironic (think Murphy's Law) will happen that makes for a funny story later. But actually it was a great experience. Our teacher was passionate about sewing and was very knowledgeable. She inspired me to want to do some great projects.

But first let's look at some of my practice runs....

Houston we have a problem...

In the wise words of my husbands favorite singer, Huey Lewis (although his early work was a little "new wave" for my tastes) it's hip to be square

So next week is when we actually start on our tote bag project...I will leave you with the following photos:

The "I don't know what I'm doing" smile

"you break my concentration and you die"

You can taste the drama, right?

  1. Good for you for getting out and learning something new! your "don't know what I'm doing" smile is super darling.

  2. Goodness! Am I really that intense? lol I have been talking about the class all day. I am so excited! AND I've been looking up nightgown patterns too. I do believe Miss Sabina might be getting a Mommy-made Christmas night gown this year.

  3. Thanks Miss Amy I was thinking that about your profile photo! LOVE IT!
