My old (and I really do mean old) sewing machine got horribly, terribly, no-goodly jammed in the needle down position. Sad panda here. I couldn't do anything with it. So, I had to get a new one. (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). I shopped around, asked my awesome sewing friend, and checked out the deals on Amazon. I got a steal of a deal there, and am the proud owner of a super fancy Brother sewing machine. I am half convinced it's smarter than I am, but as soon as it came in, I had to take it for a test drive. You know, just to make sure it worked. And so I could play with all the stitch options. I've also been itching to make some cute things for Sophia (that way I can control the colors, too!), and this was the perfect opportunity!
Test drive #1: a shirt. Sophia is clearly more interested in her crackers. Button hole maker part works!
We'll just pretend she's this excited about her shirt.
Test #2: dress with "shirred" front. (new term I learned!) I am darn proud of this dress, and am in love with the colors. (pattern here)
Getting Sophia to hold still long enough for a picture, though, was a whole different story. Therefore, here is the dress on a model going warp 7.
She loved the "pah-kitz"
Like, a lot. She also liked jumping on the bed.
I have a bajillion other ideas floating in my head, and can't wait for them to come out. My only problem now is all the cute fabrics I see, and want really bad. First yarn, now fabrics.... :) Forget a craft room....I need a craft house! Who's with me?
