I took sewing classes at the College of the Virgin Islands extended ed program and failed. I was 15. Never quite got over it and also to be honest never quite got it..I have serious distraction issues and sewing just frustrated the heck out of me. Also I can whip up 25 craft items to one sewn garment so I decided to walk away. It just wasn't fast enough for me. but I need to share that I have three sewing machines and when the bobbin would finish I'd have my friend Nancy Geaney
who you all know come over and load up another bobbin. Well today for the very first time I filled a bobbin with thread and are you ready for this??? I put it in the machine, threaded the machine and got it to stitch..all on my own. Needless to say it's a very very big Day. Lots of Firsts this week and you re all helping me bywalking through your beginner fears and letting the miracle happen.
So here it is today's quilted paper bags, I call it art, so not ready for fabric yet, I feel like that commercial where the bunny is on the zip line so happy with himself. oh and do me a favor don't tell Nancy I'll pretend cause I like when she comes over. Cheers and Hip Hip Hooray!!
The shapes for this were made with my Go baby accuquilt sewing companion.
It cuts circles and hearts so easily. See it here. They have a great Valentines kit savings going on see it here.
