So, I’m trying to learn how to sew.
Last month I got a really cheap mini sewing machine – didn’t want to be spending too much on a fancy machine seeing as I’ve never sewn before and thought it best to test the waters first, plus, it only cost €20 in Aldi.
I’ve been messing around with it a bit and I am enjoying using it (although I’m restricted to only using it at certain times because my dog isn’t very fond of the noise it makes and keeps glaring at me when I press my foot down on the pedal).
Obviously my first attempt at sewing was just messing around on a scrap of cloth. Then I moved onto trying to sew straight lines – I figure straight lines are important in sewing for being neat. Following this I discovered that I am awful at sewing straight lines. Some practice is needed there…possibly a lot. I should probably find some tutorials to watch to figure out what the hell I’m doing.
