Sewing 101

Ta-Da! Behold my first sewing project since Mrs. Mouney's home economics class in high school. Aimes- do you remember the time in class I wasn't paying any attention, she was lecturing, and I just started sewing? Talk about embarrassing!
This week I signed up for the Sewing 101 class at Jo-Ann's. We learned sewing basics, and were able to make a pillow case by the end of our 2.5 hour session. I'll admit, I'm pretty excited about it. I think I'm going to go back and get some seasonal fabric, so I can make some Halloween and Christmas pillow cases. I don't know if anyone would really want one, but I bet my 5 year old cousin Grace would like that. I'll have to get some LSU fabric too...
Sewing 201 teaches you to make a tote bag- which should be awesome. I plan on breaking out Granny's sewing machines (that's right- 2) to see what kind of magic I can work. I used her pin cushion, pins, and scissors for the class. It was a nice warm and fuzzy moment to use her supplies while exploring another hobby. I can't do much- just the basics. But if you have any special requests, let me know. Practice makes perfect... and I definitely need projects for practice.
