My mom got to me a sewing maching for my birthday last month. I haven't sewed anything on the sewing maching since I was in 7th and 8th grade Home Ec class. In 7th grade, I made a chocolate chip cookie pillow and in 8th grade I made a blue tote bag, which I still have. I guess now is as good a time as any to learn how to sew. Now, I just have to figure out how to use it and make project I should make first. I found a website allfewsewing.com that has some free patterns on it, so I think I'm going to start there. This should be an adventure. :o)
I wonder if there any sewing classes in the area where I can take classes. I might learn better if I have someone teaching me, than just teaching myself. Hopefully, learning to sew will help teach me some patience along the way too.
