My first go at sewing

I was putting this off for so long, but then my friend dropped by for a visit and set up my sewing machine for me – yay!

She showed me what to do and sewed a few things for me to see how it was done.

Then I gave it a go be sewing some envelopes I made from book pages.

There were a few duds but I managed to get a few that looked all right.

Here’s the best one of the lot:

Proud of myself for actually getting it straight – woohoo!

I’ve done a couple of tags and envelopes that I included in a junk journal, so, I’ve made a start.

I’ll have to do lots of practice, though, to feel comfortable with sewing. Looking forward to the day when it’s just habit.

  1. Your mention of sewing brought me here. Then I saw your beautiful junk journals. Your sewn pieces are going to be a lovely addition. I’ll look forward to seeing what you do with them.
