My passion in Sewing
19 Feb 08
I have been sewing with a machine for the last five years and hand sewing since I learned how in brownies when I was about seven years old. I am currently working on two projects. A blanket for my bed, one side is green cotton jungle animals with a pale yellow border and the other side is pale yellow flannel with a green jungle animal boarder. Inside is cotton batting. It is very warm and cozy I love wrapping up in it while watching tv or playing video games. My second project is a lizzard cushin one side is green crushed velvet and the other side is purple crushed velvet. It will be filled with cotton batting with black button eyes. I am making it for my friend, he has two pet lizzards and loves them alot. I have made many blankets. They are deifnatly my favourite to make but I am going to try my hand at making the animal chushions and possibly selling them :)

It's good to see teenagers liking to be able to sew.....I took home ec. in school....When we sewed the teacher knew she didn't have to stand over my shoulder to see I was using the machine right....I made more outfits than anyone in my sewing class.....The other girls enjoyed cooking more than I did....... Then when my girls started to school I could put together a outfit for them to go to school with the next day....My mother was a very large person and I used to make clothing for her cause she couldn't buy clothes off the rack......One year when I was only 16 I made her a coat made from linen fabric and a satin lining that some people who were seamstests said they would not have attempted to do....You are very wise to learn the art of being a seamstrest.......It will save you and your future husband a lot of money...
