Thanks to mom and dad, I got a sewing machine for Christmas. Luckily, it came with an instructional DVD so I could set it up by myself. And it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. My first project was to make curtains for the new baby's room. We have this massive arched window that lets in so much light, even when the blinds are closed and wanted to block it out completely. I picked this light green material that matches the bedding in her crib and lined it with blackout. I sure hope I did it right! Unfortunately, one panel is longer than the other so I still need to fix that. But I have to say, I'm proud of myself for at least COMPLETING a project all by myself - even if it isn't done exactly right. Mom, you'll probably have to fix them when ya get here. =)
So if any of you have any ideas for easy projects for beginners, I'd love to hear them. I need more practice on my machine!
