I think it's finally time to share..
I think I'm getting a baby.
No, not that kind of baby (well, at least not yet..).
This kinda baby..
Neener, Neener, fooled you!
BUT if you've been wondering about the tire tube around my middle, it IS the result of my newly acquired, convenient A.M. donut run. I mean, who doesn't love a vanilla with sprinkles in the morning?
So obviously, I've been checking out sewing machines. They've been on my mind for a few weeks, now. My "ideas and schemes" list has grown so much, and many of the projects involve a sewing machine.
Mom offered to give me hers:
So here is my problem.
I don't have the FOGGIEST on how to operate a sewing machine. Like, not a clue.
Always the optimist, here is what I CAN do:
1- Sew a button.
2- Thread a needle.
3- Use a ruler.
4- Cut in a semi-straight line.
5- Hot glue like a champ.
Each time I've popped into my Wal-mart, I've made a lap down the sewing machine aisle. Stitch numbers, bobbins, and plates?
I am looking to buy a basic machine. Doesn't have to be all fancy, doesn't have to be a $100, even. I mean what if I don't like sewing as much as I think I will??
Check this bad boy out.
Please don't laugh- this is the one I am actually thinking about ONLY because it come with an instructional video. And removable covers.
Gah- so many choices! Sewing-sensory overload!
Sewing machiners- what did you start with? Here's your chance to help a sister.
