I LOVE Sewing!!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE sewing!!  I have to say it again, I LOVE sewing!  There is something so satisfying about handmaking something that you envision.  I got my first sewing machine only just a year ago (a birthday present from my wonderful Mom and loving hubby).  I read the manual and off to town I went and have never looked back.

I had minimal instruction from my Grandma Peggy and my Mom, but really taught myself.

The creative possibilities are endless with this small machine.  Here are just a few of my projects that I have  completed with my good friend, the sewing machine:

Savannah’s Halloween Costume (2008)

Fall Dress with matching Bloomer

So as you can see, the sewing machine is a wonderful tool!  Have you ever thought about getting a sewing machine and giving it a whirl?  It’s really not as hard as it looks and the personal satisfaction it will bring you is well worth the effort!!
