I've Got Skills
Very basic sewing skills, but I'm trying to get better. I made some BabyLegs for Lillian out of $2 Target knee socks and they turned out alright. Not spectacular, but I'm sure I'll get better if I keep practicing. And I'm going to take a Sewing Basics class at Joann Fabrics in a few weeks so hopefully that will help. I have my grandmother's olllllllllld sewing machine and I've already managed to screw it up - I have to learn out to re-thread the bobbin through the bottom. It's fun, though, because I have flashbacks of helping my grandmother sew, and I remember her showing me basic sewing concepts. I remember threading the needles for her because she had a hard time seeing the eye of the needle. Of course last night I had a hard time seeing the eye of the needle.
