first sewing lessons

Hmm, the new Blogger is different, huh?

I've had my eye on this book for quite awhile and when I got a good coupon in my inbox for Barnes & Noble, I snapped it up!
Natalie especially is so excited to try something; she was practically in my sewing chair after flipping through it once, ha!  I told her we'll be starting with some hand sewing :) Before we try something from the book, I thought I'd have the girls give embroidery a go. It was so much fun, they loved it.
I tried to show Natalie how to make smaller stitches, but she kept saying, "Yeah, ok, I think I have the hang of this now".  Too cute :)

Happily, I also have a new grown-up sewing student! I'm going to start teaching my friend Maggie how to sew and she is super excited, she said she wants to sew everything and be just like me and I said, "You want to be a 50's housewife like me!?"

  3. I've said for years that I want to be just like you... I'm a bit surprised it's takne this long for someone else to say the same thing :)

  4. I want to be a 50's house-er-um... well the wife thing will come. Anyway, I would so be your student if I lived closer. I read your blog regularly and would like to start making my own clothes. Any tips?
