OK, now I know I will never be a great seamstress, but I enjoy creating, so every once in a while I get out my machine and play around. My girls are so sweet they greet all of my creations with joy and love. Even going so far as telling me that, and I quote " mommy you are the very best sewer in the world". Wonder what that one was buttering me up for? oh well.
So last weekend I got the urge and out came my SM it's has a nick name, stupid machine, It & I have never got along very well. I think it's possessed. I learned to sew on my mothers old sewing machine & I loved it. This one just has it out for me I think, it enjoys torturing me.
It takes me forever to get the tension right, after getting that figured out the bobbin thread runs out, then my needle breaks..... you get the picture. Anyway I babied it along long enough to make this for M.
I love the owls and monkeys.
Then I wanted to try my hand at making something like a poodle skirt, the school sock hop is coming up. I begged my mom to let me borrow her serger, she finally gave in and I AM NEVER GIVING IT BACK! I love the serger it is my new best friend. There is no machine like it. I came up with this skirt for M and it definitely has some great twirlability going on.
Now this has somewhat backfired on me, my Hubby wants to know ,since I made 4 skirts last weekend, why I haven't patched his jeans yet. I plead the 5th. :)
