I grabbed my sewing machine from my mom’s house on Tuesday night after picking up Finn for the day, where it had been sitting for the last few years. I tried to use it one time like five years ago and became overwhelmed by the bobbin, so I gave up. Now here I am five years later trying to figure out how to use this damn thing, and I haven’t actually successfully sewn anything since I was 10 years old. So, I sit down with my instruction manual and learn how to conquer that dumb bobbin and voila.
Check it! I make this little knitting needle case for all of my sticks..
I’ve realized that sewing and sewing machines aren’t as scary as thought. But they do require a lot of thinking. First you have to figure out what you want to create, then if you’re not using a pattern you need to deconstruct the object, and then lastly you need to figure out how you’re going to put it all together and “make it work.” (BTW Proj-Run, tonight!) Plus there is the whole technical side of it, which I’m not even close to having a grasp on.
Inside the case are compartments for my double-sided needles, my regular needles, my crochet hooks and my circular needles.
In other news, LOST starts on tuesday. I will kill someone if the last episode ends with them landing safely at LAX.
