    Hi all. My dd is 12 and got her first sewing machine for Christmas. I need to teach her but honestly I am not great myself. Anyone have any sites that might help her for basics?

    ~I was so blessed with my first dd. She was an absolute angel and would sit for hours in a bouncer or play on the floor while I sewed. Dd #2 is a wonderful baby but she wants me all the time. I homeschool when she's napping. By the time DH gets home I'm usually too tired to sew. The weekends...

    So, I am really interested in learning how to sew so that I can make things for my house, like curtains and pillows and stuff like that.

    I had an old pair of jeans in my drawer that I haven't worn since the last big snow we had. Thinking back on them i realized I almost never wear them unless I'm shoveling snow.

    Yesterday I started teaching dd10 to sew. She spend the afternoon sewing straight lines on looseleaf paper. Then we graduated to corners, and circles and swirls. She did fantastic. Today, if we have time, she'll to the same, but this time with felt, to get a feel for fabric. If that goes well...

    I signed up for a beginner sewing class. It starts this Thursday night. We're gonna learn the basics and make a pair of PJ pants. I had to get a sitter 'cause the class starts at 4 PM and ends at 6 PM. I borrowed my mom's Pfaff machine since she won't be using it while she's in Yellowstone...

    I find that as long as my hands are working I don't have time to snack. So far today I have reinvented my capris by shortening the legs and adding a split at the bottom to dress the legs up a little and I made a new pillow case from scraps to match the blanket I just finished for Brie's bed...
