At Christmas I received my first sewing machine. I really wanted one, but being that I have never sewn, I didn't know how to thread my machine. So, for the past 5 (nearly 6) months my sewing machine has been on my craft desk, taking up space and collecting dust. Until yesterday. I read the instructions on how to thread my machine and was totally confused. So I googled it. Between the great step by step google instructions I found online and the instructions that came with my sewing machine, I actually succeeded in threading my machine! By myself even! And the kicker.....it worked!! I know, I was in shock too, trust me!
So, since I had it threaded I thought, well, I will just sew a straight border around a page....EPIC FAIL!!
I can't sew a straight line to save my life so this attempt quickly turned into an experiment of all the stitches my machine had.
I have a long way to go in my sewing, but I've taken the first step! I plan to add a bit to my layouts to start. Maybe by the end of the summer I will be brave enough to attempt a camera strap cover.
