I have wanted to learn how to sew ever since I was a kid. I spent a lot of time sitting on the couch with my mother painstakingly hand sewing sequins onto dance costumes and being endlessly fascinated by the creations our dance schools came up with.
For some reason, I never made time for it. Life got busy, I studied, threw myself into my career, changed careers, moved countries and all the while this personal goal languished in the depths of the "one day I'll do it" basket.
- A headband (perfect for keeping those pesky layers out of my face while I'm taking my makeup off)
- A cosmetics case (which will be the blue fabric below on the outside, and coral on the inside)
- And a cushion cover (hedgehogs FTW!!)
I've got grand plans of getting my own machine and dabbling with dressmaking. My goal is to make an item of clothing that I would be proud to leave the house in. Baby steps! For now I'm just trying to remember how to thread the machine on my own.
What's something on your "one day I'll do it" list? Or have you conquered something from that list already?
