WHEW!

Crochet Wristlet and Crochet Hairbow
I have been really working hard to get some projects done. So far I have completed a purse and hair barrette for my daughters friend.

I have also finally taken in the waist of my husband’s pants. I was very apprehensive about attacking such a project since I had never done it before. I was afraid that I would mess up and have him not trust me to do any more alterations on his clothes.

One of the factors that convinced him to even buy me a sewing machine was the fact that I reassured him that I would be able to alter all of his dress pants. It’s only been about three weeks since I first received the sewing machine and he has been asking me every week when I would be doing the alterations on his pants.

I searched on-line for a video tutorial but could not find one anywhere. So you can understand why I felt so anxious about tackling this project. Keep in mind that I have no sewing experience. So right now I am breathing a sigh of relief because he is happy with the results.

I also told him that I would make him a suit with the sewing machine. I sure hope that he doesn’t begin asking me to begin working on that next.

    I hope to get a sewing machine for my birthday this month. I have no sewing experience either, so it should be interesting. Thanks for the inspiration.

    You must have a natural talent for sewing! I have had my sewing machine for over a year now and have really done very little with it. Every time I read I your blog I want to sew something! You go girl!!

    Wow, ambitious projects! I’m proud of you for “flying blind” if you will. I’m glad it worked out. I’ve been sewing for eight years now, and I’m still pretty intimidated by alterations!

    It sounds like you’re doing a great job conquering your new sewing machine! Way to go!

    I’m re-teaching myself (sort of) the embroidery on my machine for a special project I’m working on this week. I’ve got to get busy!
