I learned how to sew in Middle School. Home Economics class and I knew from the moment I picked it off my elective list that it was going to be great. I was so excited to make something from virtually nothing (I think that I have always been in love with that concept..something from nothing). I learned a lot of the basics in that class. How to thread a machine, how to thread a bobbin but some of the first things I remember learning to actually make was a pillow and some stuffed Christmas ornaments. The Christmas ornaments were made of a Santa Claus printed fabric. I cut a circle around the print, sewed around as best as I could I gotta say it was more of a rounded diamond ( I have yet to conquer a "straight" circle or perfect circle... i guess you could say) a bit of ribbon was added for it to hang on the tree and it was done. It was awful but I presented it to my parents and siblings with pride. After Middle school I no longer had access to a machine and I forgot the joy that sewing can bring to a person. I always had my eye on a sewing machine but I could never justify spending that amount of money on myself. After a tragic event in my life, I decided that it was something that I have always wanted so while at the store I just picked it up and put it in the cart like it was a pack of diapers....not a second thought. I have been LOVING it ever since. I will share my trials and tribulations in this blog not just the sewing but with all the crafts and baking I like to TRY. Like it says I am always to "TRYING". TRYING to TRY things is something I am very good at!
