Any of you who have been following along for some time now will know that I have a phobia about sewing machines. And that I want to conquer this phobia. The scariness of it all partly stems from using my mum's sewing machine in primary school, having the cotton knot up around the bobbin, and being told not to do any sewing "for a while...". Twenty one years later, and here I am in trepidation of the beast. Problem is, I love fabric. Lots and lots of lovely fabric. I would be happy rolling around in great swathes of yummy colours and textures! :)
Well... I have news!
First I sewed not only on the sewing machine - but the over locker too! AND I sewed in my very first zip. The finished product is not perfect... but, I think it's cool, and I am feeling very pleased with myself. :) I also managed to sew a mostly straight line or two. I'd show you more, but I am gifting it for Christmas, and I don't want the person to see too much.
