I have been scouring Pinterest for months now posting random things that I would love to make if I ever learned to sew. I think it is funny that I have such a desire to start sewing because every time I picture someone sewing they are about 70 years old making prairie dresses.
No offense, I know this is not actually reality.
But for whatever reason that is the image that pops into my mind. I do not picture a young 30 something, PE teacher.
But here I am, sewing away and I love it.
I bought this sewing machine about 3 months ago. My loving mother helped me make the purchase, cause Lord knows, I sure don’t have any extra money, and she wanted to make sure I got a nice one.
(check out that sweet work space…right between the wooden blocks, treadmill, and basketball hoop. I’m pretty sure this house is going to make it on some sort of home tour soon) (I’m just kidding, if you didn’t pick up on that.)
I was really proud of myself earlier in the week when I busted it out of the box, finally, read the directions, and figured it out.
To my amazement, it was easy.
My first project was some very homely bean bags. Actually “Quinoa Bags” because I had some expired in the pantry and no beans, go figure.
But yesterday I got serious….Burp Cloths.
I saw these on Pinterest, I followed a tutorial online.
And to my glorious amazement, I made something pretty cute.
…and useful, because this new baby will not stop vomiting on me.
