For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to learn to sew. My mother, aunts, grandmother, and middle school home economics teacher each individually taught me at different points in my life, but it never seemed to stick.
I made a sweet (by sweet I mean awesome) teal skirt and reversible vest for myself when I was approximately nine years old(I will try and find a picture...), a drawstring gym bag in seventh grade home ec, and a super cute reversible beach bag in college. However, that is the extent of my sewing repertoire.
Now that I have my own home, I really want to learn so that I can make drapes, pillows, shower curtains, duvet covers, etc. Knowing this, my mom surprised me with a sewing machine for Christmas, and I am ecstatic! (Admission: Said sewing machine is still in the box for two reasons: (a) We are waiting for a sewing machine table from Target to arrive that is NOT broken. and (b) My Corporate Finance and Managerial Accounting courses I am taking this term are kicking my butt.)
That being said-- stay tuned for future creations via this beauty:
The desk is scheduled to arrive today, so tomorrow night, my husband and I are going to set up the new desk/sewing table in hopes that I can test it out this weekend. The machine is going in what was lovingly referred to as "the wedding room" (aka, extra bedroom used for storage). I decided that it's time to move on. The wedding was eight months ago. I am trying to think up a new name...craft room? sewing room?
Help me out here by giving suggestions below in the comments section. I am really stuck...
