Sewing is something that I’ve always wished I could do! I had a roomate in college that was a fashion design major and she always created THE COOLEST things. One time, she even made a winter coat. I was so impressed (still am!) to see the pattern come to life from a piece of paper to something she could actually use; it was kind of fascinating/magical.
I kept telling Aaron about how I wanted to sew some curtains for our new place and then I told him about how I wanted to make a new skirt and new coach pillows and I guess he picked up on a hint I didn’t realize I was putting down because he went and got me a sewing machine for Christmas. When I saw it I thought, “Finally! I’ll be able to sew and make everything I’ve been dreaming about (and save tons of money too)!!”
But then… reality hit and I remembered, “Oh yeah, I have no idea how to sew.” Wouldn’t you know it, I found out about this online sewing course called Home Ec. It’s self-paced, inexpensive, for beginners, and it’s full of 28 tutorials (of practical things you’ll actually use) that help you develop your skills as you go. It’s all about progressive development and confidence building. It’s an exciting course and I’m thrilled that I found out about it since sewing has been something I’ve always wanted to do. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that the girls who run the E-Course are super neat people; they make it fun!
I’m excited to make sooo many things. There is this duvet cover that I’ve got on my list, there are curtains that I want to make for the craft room, and, and, and… I’m gonna be happily busy sewing away, and I can’t wait!
What do you want to make?
