I am sew happy I got my sewing machine. ( Now is when Kevin would laugh and roll his eyes a little at the “sew happy” part. I bust out a play on words all the time and it is one of the many things he loves about me)….but I’m off topic.
Sew,So, I have wanted to spend as much time as possible on the sewing machine. I guess that is a good sign, and also means I haven’t gotten too frustrated yet. I mean, at this point I can whip out a straight stitch like nobody’s business.
I love scarves, who doesn’t? So while at the fabric store I picked up this pretty floral fabric.
It is actually inside out in the above picture, but you can still see how lovely it is. I used 2 yards of fabric, (and here is where it gets technical) cut it in half. I wanted to use the fold side as a good clean side that I wouldn’t have to sew.
I sewed the other side, remember the fabric is inside out, and one of the ends.
Now, just like my 4th side issue with my tiny pillow, I also had a 4th side here. You see, Once you sew the 3 sides you can’t sew the 4th because you have to turn it right side out. Then you are left with an open side and a beginner pondering her next move.
“I guess just sew it” I said.
Sew I did. I know this isn’t the perfect way to do it, but I’m learning, and at my next sewing class I will be sure to ask.
Oh, and don’t forget to join our 30 for 30 remix! It will be fun!
