I love this workspace. If only I could be so organized and color-coded...
Two years ago, Anthony bought me a sewing machine for Christmas and I've been dying to learn how to use it. Instead of just jumping in and reading the manual like I would normally do, I signed up for a class at the local JoAnn Fabrics to learn the basics. In addition to learning to thread the machine, I also learned these three important things during my two-hour class.
- Darts in dresses and shirts are back in style.
- Fleece is apparently made of recycled plastic, which is why is dries so quickly and also why you can't iron it.
- Even though the supply list for the class included a yard of interfacing fabric, we never actually learned what to do with it. I did, however, learn how to hold a seam-ripper the correct way, which will come in handy when I make all of those mistakes.
Does anyone have a favorite sewing website? I promise to share my first project with you once it's done, which at this rate will probably be mid-February.
