We set it up today & started playing with it. I have never touched a sewing machine before, neither has Les but together we figured it out ( I will admit he was better then me!!)
Here is Les teaching me the basics of our first official sewing project! I had been working on the project already so it was pretty much ready to go! I am so happy with the progress! I am looking forward to working on more projects very soon!
Here is a shot of my completed work! Can you tell what it is? Its burp cloths! This set is not stitched perfect, as I was learning so they are for BB. They are made using cloth diapers & cotton fabric. I used a free tutorial that was really easy to follow. I will be making more of these as gifts for a friend who is also expecting.
Here is a photo of one of them unfolded, it gived you a better idea of how it looks/works. I think all folded nice together & tied with a ribbon they are a great addition to a shower gift!
If anyone has any other free tutorials for simple starter projects please send them my way I would like to do a bit more before BB arrvies!
My other sad story, my feet. This photo is by far NOT the worst they have been, in face at the moment they are much bigger. My DR is slightly concerned about pre-eclampsia, we are monitoring my BP every night, its only slightly elevated. I have been doing every trick I can think of to make the swelling better to no avail. I can't find any shoes to fit my feet & I am in a lot of pain. Here's the scary photo!
