I have always wanted one. I find them quite scary and way over my head, but oh to be able to sew some very personalized things for my home and my loved ones!
My first project was a pair of drawstring pajama pants – they had pockets but I skipped the pockets. This was an absolute first and I didn’t want to have pocket issues. They turned out okay – they are a little snug thanks to Christmas goodies, but I look forward to shrinking into them. They are red, black and white – a whimsical pattern with coffee cups on the fabric. I have enough fabric left over to maybe make a drawstring bag or a hair scrunchy.
I am not as frightened by my machine anymore and hope to find some easy toddler patterns or blanket patterns for my long wait in our adoption.
