I love the new head btw. I know I already told you, but I thought I'd make it official and tell you on here, lol. How did you do it?
Hi Lauren! Thanks for the comment on my blog :) I have a CANNON Powershot camera. Nothing fancy. The best thing for me to get good shots is to use natural light and not have to use the flash. My dining room table gets LOTS of natural light, so I take a lot of shots there.
I finally pulled mine out of the box because I have to sew two circle skirtws for my brother's wedding. I need to name mine too. If I leave it up to my kids (3 and 2) they will tell me to name it mater or Raccoon. I think I will be the person in charge... for once... not really:)Good luck with your sewing escapades
Thanks for visiting my blog! :) It's funny you ask about the tabs because I just did those this morning. Hopefully I can give a good explanation since it was my first try. Go to the 'Posting' tab and click on 'Edit Pages.' After you add the pages, you can change their location and order from the 'Design' tab. It automatically creates a 'Home' tab. If you want more details, feel free to email me, my address is in my profile. Good luck!
Lauren, Thanks for visiting my blog. You asked about the pattern to the baby quilt I posted. I've only been sewing for about 8 years and really the last 4 have been where I've learned the most. Straight lines are the easiest so that's what I started with. The pieces to this quilt are 1.5 inches, 2.5 inches, 3.5 inches and 4.5 inches (.25 inches on each side for seam allowance) The finale quilt measured 40x40. Recommendations for you would be to really search the web for easy projects to get you started. I love http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/. My first quilt was a rag quilt that I made at a community college continuing education class. Check around your area and see what is offered by fabric stores, and other places. You'd be surprised. Good luck, and please let me know if you have more questions.
I have to make to skirts for my brother's wedding. One is the Circle Skirt (from the blog MADE) and the other is a pleated skirt. I need to finish them up because I am running out of time:)What are you going to do for your first project?
If you want a fairly easy bag that is really cute, you can access the Made by Rae pattern through this blog post http://www.joyinthejumble.com/2011/01/buttercup-bag.htmlAnother easy project to start sewing with is, cut out a bunch of 2 or 3 inch felt hearts and sew them into a garland. It is a perfect little Valentines decoration.
Love the idea of naming your sewing machine! LOL Here is a quick run down of the baby wipe container .... You put Modge Podge on the wipe case and then add fabric on top of MP, rub out wrinkles, trim the excess fabric. Then you add another coat of MP to the top. Hot glue ribbon/trim around the edge to conceal where you cut off the excess fabric. This is a super easy project and if you mess up on the fabric, just rip it off and start over. I finished both of these in about an hour. Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Such a cute idea...naming your sewing machine! With an 18 month old sewing is definitely a hobby I'd love to learn!ShannonWebbisodeshttp://ourgatorzone.blogspot.com
I have a sewing machine that I bought last year and have used it twice. I need to start using it more.
Hey Lauren! Thanks for visiting my blog! I just started sewing about 7 months ago, so I am really new to sewing as well. My best advice would be to just jump in there. People told me to start with straight lines but that was not enticing to me at all. So I just started choosing projects I wanted to do and gave it a go. My very first project was the itty bitty dress at Made by Rae. All the small curves were kind of hard at first, but I learn something new each project I attempt and I get better every day. I'm excited for you. Learning to sew is a great adventure.http://homestitched.blogspot.com
Wow, that's a tough one! I would say use it first to see what kind of relationship you have with it! Love? or Hate?? Ha Ha
Hey Lauren,I honestly don't really know anything about sewing. I know the basics- how to get the machine all set up and how to stitch and back-stitch:)I've gone to the bookstore and sat and read through sewing basics books but mostly for me it's just trial and error... and a bad attitude when there's errors haha.
Oh how fun!! I've really been wanting to get a sewing machine. Good luck with it! And thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I have a Nikon D3000 and shoot most of the time using my 35mm lens, which is what gives it that awesome blurry background. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions!
Hi Lauren, it's Jen from Scissors & Spatulas. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment! I sewed sewed my curtains. I don't do much sewing, only curtains and pillows. THe drapes are super easy because it's all straight lines. Good luck on yours! Jen
