In other news I have been learning how to sew!!
I have my moms old sewing machine.
My sister came over the other day and taught me the basics of sewing.
I did take sewing in grade 10 but at the time it went through one ear and out the other.
My social life was much more important than retaining useful information!
I have been itching to learn how to sew for a while and can't wait to get better and better.
My mom is a fantastic sewer.
She sewed everything from our clothes to our bedding to curtains and dolls.
She even made my prom dress.
When I wanted something cool from the store she used to always say...
" I can make that for you".
Ugh how that used to get on my nerves!
Maybe that was the reason why I was so passive when it came to learning how to sew as a teen.
But now I find myself saying...
"if I just knew how to sew I could make that".
Funny how life is!
So here are my first projects as a new sewer. I hope you are proud mom!
The larger bag is for diapers and wipes. The second is a little bag for makeup or what have you.
I also took in some of Sophia's pants in the waste. I felt very motherly and domestic! I love it!
