Alright, I have never learned how to sew. Well that might not be exactly true. My mother, June Cleaver herself, tried to teach me to sew when I was a teenager. Unfortunately, she gave up on me and I did not learn how to sew. The problem was that I have, and if you have ridden with me in the car you know this to be true, a pedal to the metal problem. I think that I am a race car driver and have probably help pay for some great renovations at different police department. When learning how to sew I thought that faster was better and my mom probably had all that she could take and gave up. Now that I am a stay home mom, I think that I need to learn how to sew. Don’t all stay home moms know how to sew?? I have also been introduced to Pinterest. I really don’t think that I need to add anymore to that statement. So, I bought myself a sewing machine. I researched and researched sewing machines, and found the brother CS600i
to be good for the money and learning sewing machine. I ordered it at Target and got to use $90 worth of gift certificates that I had been saving. Yeh! It came in the mail today!
Well, I also need to learn how to sew. So, I searched for sewing classes in my area, and was not able to find any (I live out in the country). I did find several on line that seemed really expensive and only had two to three projects. Then I found HomeEC on Pinterest.
It had lots of great review and you complete 27 projects for around the same price or cheaper than the other ones. So I am now enrolled in HomeEc and will begin my sewing education class tomorrow. Just a little side note, I went to Catholic School and they did not offer Home Economics, so I did not learn in high school like normal people. Apparently good Catholic girls were not expected to cook, clean, or sew. My first project is to make a reusable gift bag. I let my Emma, my daughter, pick out the fabric. I will take a picture of my version of a reusable gift bag look like tomorrow. Here is what the reusable gift bag is supposed to look like.
Mine will probably look different. Now looking at the picture, I realize that I was supposed to buy coordinating fabric for the strip on the top. I did not do that. Oh, well.
