Well, I managed to dig out my sewing machine this week. It's funny, sewing both excites me and scares the crap out of me! I don't know why, but I get so nervous to begin any sewing project. I tried to jump right in and make some gift bags for the ornaments Hannah picked out for her teachers.
I must say, I wasn't very "technical" when I made these bags. I measured by eye, didn't iron the fabric and I can't even say that my lines were straight. Despite this, Hannah's teachers told her that they were impressed...woohoo!!!
Next time, I will double my edges over to prevent fraying, and I will likely add a drawstring. I was running short on time, so I simply made bags and tied them with ribbon.
So, now that I have my sewing feet wet, what should I tackle next?
Stay tuned to see what I have up my sleeve...or should I say, pant leg?
