I have previously stated that I don't know how to sew. I suppose that is technically incorrect. Back in 7th grade our home-EC class was all about sewing....fun! So technically I haven't used a sewing machine since 1996. Well I finally broke that bad boy out this afternoon and with a little help from hubby (I sat and stared at the machine until he came over to show me how to thread it) I actually managed to make a little sack for Maddie's bear puzzle.
Frankly it is nothing to brag about in the least but I am happy to say that I did not sew any fingers to any material and I was also able to wield the iron without burning myself. Ah, yes the iron is also hubby's domain!
Technically the bag still needs some sort of closure, I am thinking Velcro would be a good choice, but besides that it came out pretty cute. I even did a little bear applique to pretty it up!
Now that I have dipped my pinkie toe into the sewing pool I am convinced that I can make some homemade gifts for Mad this Christmas. Darn all you inspiring mommy bloggers! hehe
