I mentioned yesterday that I’d be taking a sewing class today and… I made a pillow cover!
I mean, look at those stitches!
And don’t say “well the machine did that!” because EXCUSE ME but the machine didn’t make them so straight! And it didn’t measure & iron that hem!
I took the Intro to Sewing Class at Urban Spools in NE Dallas, and it was really great. I got a refresher on the parts of the sewing machine, tips on setting up, and guidance throughout the project. The class was totally appropriate for a complete beginner or someone who hadn’t used a sewing machine since middle school like me.
After class I treated myself to a taco from Torchy’s since luckily it’s right nearby. I got one of my favorites, the Trailer Park (trashy, on flour) and it was delicious.
And I signed up for another sewing class soon. The project is a little zipper pouch and I’m really curious to see what it’s like sewing in a zipper since I’ve seen so many go wrong on Project Runway over the years. 😀
