tissue holders and aprons. I'd love to learn how to make more things, but first I have to get the hang of my sewing machine. I'm a learn-by-watching kind of person and I don't have anyone to walk my through my machine. I've picked up a bit reading the manual, but I end up more frustrated than confident.
So, it might be odd that I'm going to a sew-in in November! Blame it on Wendy, most of my latest crafting adventures have been at her urging.
The 1st Annual (ug!) #OHcraft Sew-In is being held Nov. 8-10 at the Hueston Woods Lodge & Conference Center. (Beautiful!) And, Wendy's my roommate. (Yay!) I'm already counting the calories we're going to ingest and laughing at the fun we're going to have!
But what am I going to make?! I like my sewing machine (I think); it's the one I wanted to get started. But, it's gonna get laughed out of the conference center. I could handle that, if I was an expert on it, if I could justify its size (small) and its simplicity through how well it worked. Unfortunately, I know so little about sewing machines that I don't know if it's me or the machine that sucks.
Maybe sewing is out. You don't have to sew at a sew-in, do you? Maybe I'll just make pretty cards with my pretty fabric. That's more up my alley. Tape runner in place of thread.
Do you sew? How did you get started? Any tips for me?
