My Adventures in Sewing

I had an Ah-Ha moment this evening.  I saw something that inspired me and I am beyond excited to try and sew my own!

I have one messy eater in my 16 month old.  She has been since day one.  As she is not a fan of bibs (she always rips them off), I have tried and tried to come up with something to keep her clean.  I am in the process of making her an apron, hoping that will work. 

However, I saw the “perfect” bib tonight.  It was truly and Ah-Ha moment and I can’t wait to try my hand at making my own pattern and sewing my own “perfect” bib 🙂

Making my own pattern…..hmmmmm…..let the adventure begin!

A ballet bag – that is what inspired me to try my hand at sewing.  All I wanted was a simple bag for my daughter to keep her ballet slippers in. 

I have never considered myself to be a “crafty” person or an artist in any way, but I try.  While browsing at my local fabric/craft store, I looked into the sewing classes they offered.  I also found out that they offered the classes at 50% off the published price if you signed up during one of their “open houses”.  I signed up for 2 classes; absolute beginner & a class called “Lazy Pants”.

Absolute beginner was just that – machine features, threading the machine, stitching styles and tour of the fabric floor.  It was perfect considering I hadn’t touched a sewing machine since the 7th grade (long, long ago)

Next up, Lazy Pants….let the adventure begin 🙂

Hello World! 

This is my first blog post – ever.  Kind of scary, kind of exciting!  These posts will chronicle my adventures in sewing, a new hobby I have embarked upon.  In fact, I have a sewing class tonight 🙂

If you are taking the time to read this, thank you.  Please feel free to offer any sewing advice, fun projects or great sewing sites to visit.
