For Christmas I was given a sewing machine. I was so excited and could not wait to get started. Needless to say I haven't really had anything to do with a sewing machine since 8th grade, home ec class. So my skills were definately little rusty. When I recieved the machine I was super excited to take it to Denver because I figured it would give me something to work on. Well, I didnt know that are apartment would be under 300 square feet and that I would have to tip toe around during Jaxtons naps. There was just no way I would be able to sew while Jaxton napped like I had hoped. I tried to not let that discourage me to much and just sewed when Jace was home or used my neighbors apartment while Jax napped. So to may a long story short I finished my first project. It took 3 months and lots of frustrated moments but I did it. Here is the adorable bag that looks great from a distance and not so great up close! :) For all those that I have seen create masterpieces with there sewing machine I say to you "If only it was as easy as it looked!"
