Oh my New Sewing Machine
So, I DID IT!!
I cut out most of what I needed to cut out yesterday.
that would be.
- Morgan’s pj pants
- Ian’s pj shorts (they changed their mind)
- Owyn’s pj shorts
- Danyca’s pj shorts
- Danyca’s pj tank top
- Freya’s pj shorts
- Freya’s pj tank top
- 3 Kaia reversible pants (need to cut out 3 matching pieces now)
- 1 Kaia tank top dress
- 1 Kaia reversible skirt (need to cut out other side and matching trim now)
- 1 curtain for Brianna
I honestly went on to sew. I was going to mess around on my new machine a bit (an early 70’s Kenmore with it’s own table) that was given to me by a friend. I sat down at it, fiddled with learning to thread it, etc. And discovered that I just CANNOT figure out how to get it to sew a straight line. I can’t believe it, it’s so dorky I just laughed at myself. So I hunted online to find a manual for it (158.14101) found it, paid for it with paypal, then discovered I’d clicked the wrong darn link. Paid for the wrong darn manual. And now I need to wait for Monday to contact customer support (though I AM going to try today) to ask if they would switch me with the manual that I can acutally use LOL.
So I guess I’m going to cut out some more stuff today. I need to cut out
- Morgan’s flannel pj pants
- Ian’s flannel pj pants
- Owyn’s flannel pj pants
- Freya’s flannel pj dress
- Danyca’s flannel pj dress
- figure out what to use the left over material on for Kaia
- 6 Stockings (green plaid with green strips for the top + Hobbes)
Soooo, I’m off to fiddle with the darn sewing machine again. Maybe see if I can figure out that bottom serger needle that is causing my other serger needles to bust (or find the book to help me fix it alternately) If I can’t sew. I guess I’ll have to clean *sigh* I’ll work on my room! Organization! yeah, that’s the ticket!
