An Investment in...

April 5th, 2010 at 11:55 am

fabric!



I'm going to make a valance for my kitchen window out of one fabric and some placemats out of at least one of the others. Reversible placemats maybe? I have yet to figure it all out. The fabrics only set me back about $8! This has got to be less expensive than buying new from the store and maybe even equal to a thrift store for used.

My sewing machine has been a great tool for us. Do you have a sewing machine you use or another great tool worth its investment?

    Wow,what beautiful fabrics!

    I learned to machine sew in home ec (giving away my advanced age!)as my mom did not sew. I bought my first machine with babysitting money at age 11, and upgraded to my current one about 15 years ago. I used to nurse my babies while watching PBS sewing shows. In my early years of being at home with the girls, I even did some alterations for neighbors and others through word of mouth.

    I love to sew, though don't have as much time now as I used to. Through the years, I've sewn a lot for the house (many curtains and quilts,) clothes for us, and lots of gifts.

    Well, that's a trip down memory lane...sewing is a great thing!

    Have lots of fun with your new fabric! Hope we get to see the finished items...

    I like to sew gifts for other people. I just made some burp cloths and bibs for a soon-to-be nephew and have made many gifts in the past. I also make curtains when I have time.

    I used to make clothes (even made a couple prom dresses in high school...when mom was around to help Smile ) but haven't done that in forever.
