My Adventures in Sewing

Sewing 101

Posted on: November 18, 2010

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 🙂
