It's true. I'm not even out of my twenties and I've been bitten by the sewing bug. I guess it's not that crazy, since, after all, we all love fabric. I suppose I could get by with DIYing no-sew pillows and no-sew curtains for the rest of my life, but it'd be prettttty sweet to stitch those puppies up next time. Oh and don't even gt me started about how cute it would be to sew baby stuff. Fah-get-about-it. That's gotta happen. I- I- I wanna sew-sew-sew all the way-ay-ay... yeah, I just sang about sewing to the tune of a Britney Spears song. That happened. I'm way too excited about sewing!
I blame it all on Dana. I mean, seriously. I found her blog a few weeks ago and fell head over heels with her work. Look at the ridiculous (read: ridiculous = amazeballs) stuff she sews.
Her projects are incredible! Oh and she dyes fabric. Too adorable.
So let's see, I could make adorable baby stuff like the above, handmade pillow cases, my own curtains and anything else my little heart so desires? Sign me up.
Oh, except for that one minor side note known as: I don't know how to sew. And I don't have a working sewing machine. Hm. Speed bumps. I do have my great-grandmother's sewing machine, but it's more like an antique than it is a functioning piece.
So here's my question. Do YOU guys know anything about sewing? If so, what are the best, "I've-never-touched-a-sewing-machine-before," beginner sewing machines that you would recommend? And it won't hurt if you let me know the less expensive machines out there... I can quickly see this becoming an expensive hobby : ) Thanks, peeps!
