Hello & Happy Last Week of September Everyone!!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
I did some crafting... Trying to make a small
pillow case... had to wait for a Zipper foot to
arrive in order for me to sew it - :)
Last week I told you I was trying to learn how to sew
and I'm self teaching myself... YIKES!!! The sewing
machine SCARES the crap out of me and I always feel
very intimidated by it - I had like 3 sewing machines all given
to me (I never asked for them - MIL & Mom gave them to me)
I did sell one of them & I still have 1 that needs
a couple small parts, and I got another
one that is sorta a newer model... (not really)
but newer than the other ones I did have!
Any who - I told you I would Share my
Fall Place mats that I created - Now I can tell you, right off the
bat, that I knew I messed up the corners - they are not square
like they're suppose to be - partly because I SUCK at cutting!
I can totally admit it - which is why they are ALL off! LOL
If you notice the seam is also crazy crooked!
I apparently can't sew straight! hahaha :)
I did get a little better with each mat - (according to my mom anyway)
I decided to double stitch each mat because... Well....
It's ME who is sewing these things and I know they will
fall apart! tehehehe
Anyway.. here are the Fall place mats I made
all by myself as my very first sewing project!
I'm totally cool with any comments you may have
as I know I have a loooong way to go in learning!
I've already bought more material to try making Christmas
place mats - so let's see if I get any better! hahahha
All the Material was from Walmart - I thought I would
start out with so so material, before buying the good stuff! ;)
I also purchased an apron pattern (from Joann's) -
I'm not really gonna try that one on my own..
My mom said she would cut the pattern out for me
(Thank Goodness) & my son Hunter has been learning to sew
at school and has already made an apron (I'll share it when
he finally brings it home) - So, I've enlisted his help! (Wink Wink)
Maybe I will like sewing? So far it's not to bad since I know
I'm not that good at it! I need to work on cutting more
accurately since I'm really bad at! :)
After all my Jibber Jabber about sewing -
I think I'll share a card with you tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by & sharing your
thoughts & comments with me!
Have a FABULOUSLY Crafty Day!!!!
