So naturally, for my 'first' usable sewing machine, I went for the Singer. We got this one at the Hickham AFB Bx. It was on sale for $50 less then the Navy NEX. Interesting, uh? Shows it pays off to checkc out everywhere!
So now I have a table full of fabrics that I picked up this week at walmart from the scrap bins to start practicing on! I have a pile full of flat sheets that my family doesn't use and tshirts and dresses I have picked up to use as recycled materials..should be an interesting adventure I'm starting out on here!
I have always enjoyed crafts and creating different things. Whenever I work on a project, my husband is always amazed at how artistic I am. Which is funny because I have always seen myself as the misplaced Indian..I mean come on..how many Indians do you know that are allergic to nature and can't draw? LOL! I do tend to put a creative spin on most things I touch but really my crafting motto has been more of 'If at first you try and you fail... Hide ALL evidence there was ever an attempt!'
So here I go...let's see how this works! Today, I am going to work on Travel Pillows for kids that attatch to seatbelts! I love this idea, my daughter, Lyssi, 5, is way to big for her 5 pt harness but when she falls asleep in her booster..well it just looks painful! So I am hoping that this one helps!
Later tonight or tomorrow I will post pics of this adventure and do my post on homemade laundry soap and fabric softner! Blessings!
