my daughter caitlin has been telling me for months that she and some of her girl friends would like to learn how to sew....
really ! i say, well i can teach you and your friends how to sew !
i even have all the fabric and patterns [ hard to imagine i know ] to get everyone started.
so last evening at 5:30pm we started....
first with basics on how a sewing machine works and what it needs to purr'
threading a machine correctly
and never, never throw away the manual !
we talked about patterns:
how to read them
lay out fabric
four hours later
each girl knew how to:
thread their machine
basic pattern reading and cutting
the magic of the iron
and drum roll......
the completed pair of pajama bottoms,
using vintage sheets found at Good Will.
not bad for beginners !
and we ate pizza too.
in 2 weeks we will be making aprons :-)
