My DD's roommate got a sewing machine for a graduation present, but didn't really know the first thing about sewing. Her mother wanted to show her, but she was from NY state, so her mom was too far away. My DD, her roommate and I were shopping and found some really cute fabric at a local Walmart, and she made a comment about how she really wished that she knew how to use her new machine, so I told her I would help her. She came over 3 days this week, and I showed her how to thread her machine, wind the bobbin, and especially sew! We made 3 "Super 9-Patch" baby blankets. She got one all completed, including quilting, and will finish the rest of the quilting at home. It was a fun week and I felt good that I had helped her with this life skill.
Tracy sewing on her new machine!
Her first completed sewing project! So happy!
