    Making Clothes, etc.

    Advertisements
    I'm trying to decide whether I should purchase a sewing machine and start making dresses and stuff since I can never seem to find clothes I like, AND because I HATE spending hundreds of $$ on clothes. I also want to make homemade teddy bears, bunnies, etc like my Granny and Mom used to make. I used to help them when I was little and I want to start it up again.

    Any tips?? I need to get a sewing machine and stuff... I don't even know where to begin it's been so long!!

    I also think it would be so sweet if I made the dress I wear to DB's homecoming... I dunno, I just think he'd love that.

    Yep I took a sewing 101 class lol and I made a skirt that I have even wore
    I have a Singer with 70 stitches and different functions. I bought it from the NEX for about $120. I love having my machine. Not having enough free time hasn't really been helpful when it comes to practice and learn how to do something. I would buy one if you can. I know Singers are good, that's why I bought that one. Take a class if you can also, that's going to break the ice when you buy it and don't have idea where to start lol

    I love my sewing machine too. I made DD's halloween costume year before last. It was a lot of fun. I'd sew more if I had more time.
