I am really excited that I have finally discovered the joy of sewing! Completely inspired by so many of my bloggy friends – it has opened up a whole new world!
Admittedly, I purchased the sewing machine (from ALDI, no less) for the purpose of sewing on cards & paper, but recently have started trying out a few quick and simple projects. The kind that can be completed in a night. That way I get that lovely satisfied feeling of job completed and I’m actually working within my skill level – absolute beginner who had to remember the basics from when I did sewing in high school 20 years ago.
Along with a new love for sewing, I have reclaimed my love of giving handmade gifts! Mainly so that I have a reason to sew!
I found the perfect pressie for boys turning 4 when Bear had a run on birthdays last month – they all received rice/bean bags and a drawstring bag. Easy to make and were all very well received!
In searching for some simple gifts for Goose & I to make for her friends, girls turning 8, I came across some fantastic ideas which we’ve been making. I’ll share those ideas, along with some tutorials and links, as soon as I get a chance to take some photos of them!
I know lots of you who read this blog are sewers…any ideas for quick and simple projects for a beginner like me??
I’m off to check out the new home of ‘my creative space‘ to be inspired!
