I have to confess...
I was given a really amazing sewing machine during the summer from someone who was tired of having it collect dust in their closet. (Thanks Eryn!)
But, guess what it has been doing?
Because I was afraid to try it.
Yes, I am a total hypocrite.
So yesterday as I sat down to sew with my beloved, yet troubled Singer, I thought of all of you. That are scared of your sewing machines. So I unplugged my first love and opened up the case of the new and mysterious Brother.
The one that I don't know how to thread.
Or wind the bobbin.
Or have an owner's manual for.
Does that sound like you?
But I sat down. I stared. I turned knobs. I pressed buttons. I sewed some crazy jacked up stitches (on ugly scraps of course). I googled some things.
Slowly the Brother became less scary.
It became wonderful.
It doesn't sound like a freight train.
It doesn't eat my fabric.
It has a light.
All of the things that my Singer no longer could do, the Brother can.
I could have been sewing on it for months.
Totally kicking myself right now.
So if you are scared, I am right there with you.
I got through it and so will you.
When Monday comes I will give you a materials list and some homework.
I am so stinking excited!!!!
But someone has a head start on you...
They won Material Gal's Amy Butler Bundle.
Honestly I am a bit jealous.
Want to send me a scarf when you're done?
