After spending big money for alterations, repeatedly, I finally decided I needed to learn how to sew. I sat down yesterday, in front of the appropriate machine, and with my nerves floating around everywhere, I completed my first sewing project.
I had a houseguest Monday night. She noticed the large trashbags that SpecialK had unceremoniously dumped on our bedroom floor. Contents of the trashbags were gifted to me by a very nice lady who was cleaning out her sewing room. I gave my guest her choice of materials, and while she was picking out her favorites, I asked her for a first and second choice.
I advised my houseguest that I was growing a list of projects, and that the first thing that I was going to do was make a bookmark from an appropriate sized piece of material.
When it was time to sit and sew, the piece of material that was to become a bookmark was no where to be seen. So I made an instant decision, and made a hair scrunchie for said guest. Then I sat down, and made another.
The angle of the pictures are different, but in truth, the white lace one on the right, is larger. No concerns, Rachel needs a large hair scrunchie, for her thick hair.
Do you sew? What are some of your favorite things to sew?
