I've begun my practice! I've got my manual & I have some scrap fabric.
Project #1: Learn how to do some basic sewing with my machine.
In order to get used to this old beauty I decided I'd just practice with some scrap fabric I had from a project a few years back. Once I began I decided to, at least, try to turn it into something close to real.
Well, I was able to turn out 2 little cloth bags. When I presented them to my kiddos they jumped for joy & told me the bags would become their "Nature Bags", & I got a lot of thank you's & hugs!
I was so pleasantly surprised because this was not a beautiful piece of work though I got such a nice response! Talk about motivation to keep sewing!
My next project will be 2 small bags for a birthday party we are attending soon!
