My new toy.....
My husband is the BEST. He impulsively bought me a sewing machine the other day. Wasn't that so sweet!! He sooooo gets me and supports my desires to try new things. Whether I am good at those things is totally up to me, and . . . . . . well . . . . I wish I could say that I was good at this. When it comes to sewing....so far....I'm not so good! LOL. I know, I know, patience is a virtue and practice makes perfect, I know!! But, in general, it was a tough go.
We got her all threaded (after 20+ minutes) and then Ali read the instructions before she gave it a whirl...
Then I decided to give it a try......(I'm very focused - haha)
We didn't have a plan for making anything, we just wanted to get a feel for the machine and practice a little. Even Josh got in on the fun (and sewed much straighter lines than Ali and I did, that's for sure)
Ali tried making ruffles, and then she tried to sew a bunting.....none of it was too successful, so at the end of the sewing practice run, we managed to make a . . . . . . . . .
P I L L O W !
A totally intentional t i n y pillow......
...and sadie totally loves it!
We are not giving up, don't worry! We will try again soon & I will keep you posted on our progress!
I hope you had a great Tuesday!
