I’d say my Mom was a pretty decent seamstress as she was able to make anything from simple pillows all the way up to some pretty difficult dresses and beautifully shaped and lined curtains.
So, when I was about 16 years old, she tried to impart some of her awesome sewing skills onto me. We tried to make an apron and I’m not even sure that I finished it. I just remember that sewing was not something I had either the desire for or the patience for at the time.
All these years later and I now have the sewing bug. After mulling it over for a couple of years, I finally signed up for a sewing class and went out and bought a sewing machine and couldn’t have been more excited! In fact, after two classes, I’m still excited. Excited to keep going and to keep learning.
My first project in the class was a cute little draw string bag that I just finished up. I love the fabric my daughter chose (it will be her bag). The second project currently in the works is a pair of pajama pants, again for my daughter.
I mean who doesn’t love space monkey pajama pants!! I think my Mom would be proud of me.
