I am the PROUD owner of a sewing machine(thanks for the early christmas gift mommy)...doesn't mean i know really know how to use it...Thomas had to help me get it set up. Go figure the one time i don't read the instructions, he does :) Anyways, i have been working away with EASY PEASY starter projects to get my feet wet. Ultimate goal-QUILT!!!! So far i have made a few necklaces and two tote bags. Tomorrow I am attempting a hat made out of an old shirt!! So, for all you wishful sewers out there, i say take the plunge. If i can do it, anyone can. Plus there are some GREAT blogs that help along the way!!! I'll try to get pics of the hat I am making by tomorrow!!!
