My parents came over and surprised me with roses! They also gave me my moms old sewing machine which I’d asked for. It has been gathering dust for years, so I’m working on cleaning it and learning how it works. Thank god that my stepmom was able to find the instruction manual! It’s quite complicated to me, I’ve never really used a sewing machine before and this one has a lot of options.
I plan on using it to make things like plushies. I’ll have to create a good workingspace for it, it’s important when using a sewing machine you can sit comfortably and use both hands and the foot pedal. I need space and light and hopefully I’ll be able to magically create that. (The table it’s on right now is at bar hight, not so handy when you’ve got to use a foot pedal.)
It would be a good idea to take part in a sewing course, learning how it works from someone who knows how to teach it seems like a good plan. Maybe I’ll even be able to sew skirts and the like if I learn it properly.
My cousin is a pretty good seamstress so we’ve made a date to drink tea and figure out the machine together. I’ve got to start somewhere. 🙂
