Iron and ironboard? Check.
Sewing machine Pfaff Hobby 1142 …? Check! Woohoo!
A little while ago I came across a beautiful little piece of fabric at my neigborhood fabric store called Bolt. Allthough I did not know what to make with it, I took it home because I really liked the print:
Now, several months later, I am so happy to have made something with it! My first sewing project: a bandana…
It was surprisingly easy, I must say. I just took a bandana I already had, put it on my piece of fabric and just lined it out while making sure I add an inch for hemming and cut cut cut I went.
Then I simply folded the edges once and ironed a sharp crease for the hemline and repeated that once more. And then I just sewed it together. Really… it was that easy!
Appreciating the simplicity of knitting
While I was making my first tiny little sewing project, it occured to me how many tools were needed: scissors, iron board, iron, and sewing machine. Before I could get started with sewing, I had to thread the bobbin, then thread the machine, then bring up the bobbin thread.
This whole proces of this little tiny sewing project made me realize how simple knitting is: just two sticks and some strands and off you go. No fuzz…
But then again, I was very much taken by the instant gratification of my bandana project. In less than an hour it was finished…
Thank you for reading and untill the next entry!
