I've officially started my first pattern, an apron. It seems like a beginner's "first sewing project." I imagine it's relative to hearing a beginner pianist play "Fur Elise" (although I'll have you know that even though it's the classic "piano student" song, it's intermediate level). The package says "easy," so let's see if they are correct.
Project: Stitch 'n Save M6536 Apron
Start Date: June 17th, 2012
Store: Joann Fabrics (pattern & fabric)
Yardage: 1.5 yards- main color, 1 fabric quarter- contrast
Here's what I've accomplished so far:
|Ironing the Fabric.|
|Ironing the pattern.|
|Cutting out the pattern (maybe not as nicely as I should have), pinning them to the fabric & cutting out the fabric.|
I am now all ready to thread the machine and sew it up.
Stay tuned for the finished results. Wish me luck. I need to go out and buy sharper scissors! :)
