Adventures in Sewing

So my first solo sewing project was a success, but Tuesday evening’s attempt was nothing close to an awesome piece.  Make that two piece fails to be exact!
My first idea was to try a “super simple” skirt pattern my sister had sent me, and successfully completed I might add.  So I ironed my fabric, checked out the pattern then quickly realized my sewing room supplies are very lacking.  To get an even cut I will definitely need to purchase a cutting board, roller cutter and measurer.  (Which I purchased on amazon today!) 
I put that idea to the side and thought I could wipe out a little zipper pouch.  I didn’t have a pattern, but how hard could it be.  Oh, I was in for a bit of frustration and no zipper pouch to show for it.  Whomp, Whomp. 
Needless to say I have quite a bit more to learn, and think I should get the supplies I need and stick to easy patterns and picture heavy instructions.
And maybe re-read the instructions on this bad boy!
I am still determined to finish my 52 patterns in 52 weeks.  My goal this week is to have something completed by Sunday night!


  1. I want to learn to see sew so bad!!! It's seems so hard and I worry I won't have the patience. You'll have to let me know how it goes!
