I just finished my first project sewing from a pattern.
It feels good to finish.
It's a little thing but it makes a big difference. When I start a project there's always the exciting lead off, "Yeah! I'm gonna do this."
Most of the time, I loose interest after going insane trying to work out some kink.
"What the F!"
Therefore, I thought I should start out small. I decided to make a extra, extra small (infant-sized) throw back version of the hoodie, the one with the white zip.
Little things are cute.
I followed all of the directions. ALL of the directions.
I ended up following E straight through - - when it was F that I was working on.
E was good practice.
It was directions for the vest version of the sweatshirt. Now I understand seam binding but I also had finished the edges where I was supposed to be adding sleeves.
Here's how the little thing made a big difference.
I could have flipped out about ruining it and given up right then and there.
But who could be mad at a mini red sweatshirt.
I attached the sleeves anyway. The reality is that I need practice to build my confidence. To tell you the truth sometimes it's a challenge just to cut the fabric. I have to say to myself over and over again,
"You will be happy when it's finished.
Oh! Happy Day!
I'm finished! Only took me a few hours, over two days.
I found out that I although my Grammy passed down to me an amazing sewing kit with almost everything I have ever needed - - there wasn't a zipper foot. I managed to find a way to attach my first zipper and now I can identify a zipper foot, and I know I need to pick one up.
Modeling my Masterpiece
I finally found something too small for me to squeeze into.
