Before mylife was taken over by moving boxes, packing paper, missing tape guns and dust bunnies I happened upon a sewing machine at a pawn shop. I was pretty excited to find this machine and have been wanting one for some time. Most of my friends would not peg me for the sewing type much less the crafty type, but I got my sew on and actually enjoyed it.
I decided that my first craft would appropriatly be an apron. I found a simple $3.99 pattern for a skirt and just made half the skirt to make an apron.
After almost going blind trying to thread the needle on the machine I dived in head first and started to make an apron. Considering it was my first sewing project and I managed to stitch everything together without drawing blood I am confident to declare it a sucess.
The two main things that I will have to focus on for my next apron will be gathering more evenly and doing a better job at putting the pockets on straight. But for my first project ever on a sewing machine I think I should give myself a pat on the back.
