So I stump back to the bedroom to put on shorts and shoes. The whole way I am calling Reiggin a butt head, dork, and other choice words in my head. I stump out the door and down the stairs. I open the trunk and to my surprise there is a brand new Janome sewing machine just for me! Reiggin surprised me and got me a new sewing machine for my belated birthday present. I have been asking to get one for awhile. I knew I had to go back upstairs and say sorry for being so mean, not that he knew I called him a butt head. I am hoping to learn how to sew. My goal is to learn how to sew clothes for Virginia and maybe some new purses for myself.
As you all know I tend to get super excited fast and go full force into projects, I don't like to wait. So at 10:30pm at night I made a run to Walmart to get all the tools and materials for my first project. Once back home I set up everything on the kitchen table. I only said a few choice words as I got the bobbin ready and finished the project. By 1:30am I had a complete envelope pillow cover. For my first project I believe it turned out great. I just need to work on cutting the fabric and sewing in a straight line. Oh and I am hoping my iron is in the trunk of my car with all the other items I still need to bring up.
Here is the youtube video I used to teach me how to sew the envelope pillow case. The woman in the video is super detailed. I found it very easy to follow along. Next up I am going to try to follow her video on how to make a draw string bag.
