I just want to take this opportunity to brag on myself.
Just a little.
It's just... I'm so excited about this!
So I asked for a sewing machine for my birthday from madre.
Okay... so my birthday isn't for another week and a day...
Doesn't bother me one bit!
David and I eagerly busted that baby out of the box as soon as I came home from school.
It's kind of interesting because David seemed more excited than I was at the time, which is pretty dang excited because I was definitely excited.
Friday I found myself not able to focus on anything else but sewing.
Over the past several months, my mind has been creating a folder in my brain of all sorts of creations I could make with my new sewing machine. So many possibilities! If only I had the time... Stupid school! *fist shake of disgust*
Okay... just kidding.... I guess school isn't stupid...... But it's definitely a frustration to me! It's relentless!
So back to Friday.
I found myself at Jo-Ann's even though I had tons of work to do (and still do at this moment). So many amazing possible projects to behold. I found myself taking a stroll through each aisle, admiring each and every item.
I decided that I wanted to make an article of clothing. As I perused all of the pattern options available, I found a winner. Next, I chose a fabric. After some time, I was able to find a viable option.
I had this beautiful vision of how amazing my skirt would be. Although I have never successfully sewed anything, I thought that somehow I would be able to figure out.
Then reality kicked in. It kicked a little too hard actually.
I started to realize that such a project would require a great deal of expertise. Expertise I do not have.
I have had little experience with sewing.
Much less successfully creating something that I would want to wear.
A few moments of panic ensued.
I decided to call my MIL, Lisa.
She came to my rescue, as always!
We worked and worked and worked.
And voila! The finished product :)
It feels so amazing to be done!
I feel like I can actually make things now.
Again, I definitely have to give a lot of the credit to Lisa because I had no idea what I was doing.
