I can use a Sewing Machine!
I mentioned recently that my friend Charly and I have really got into trying new crafts (see cupcake post) so we decided to book onto an hour long course on Sewing Machine Basics at our local Sewing shop. I have never used a Sewing Machine before and was a little worried that I'd end up sewing my fingers together or something stupid like that! We had such a great time though, we learnt how to set up the machine, thread a needle, transfer cotton onto a bobbin, use different stitches, widths and lengths and how to secure the end of a row of stitches. We then had a go at stitching four pieces of material together to make a mini patchwork quilt. The hour flew past and I came away with another couple of skills under my belt and a desire to keep practising! I'm really proud of my first ever attempt at sewing, have you tried anything new lately?
