i love the sense of accomplishment :]

9 Feb

Remember when I was having ridiculous issues with the tension on my sewing machine while trying to make this bag? Well, guess who was a silly goof? 😉 I was threading the bobbin wrong all along and it was giving me grief every time I would try to sew. On Monday night, a few of us girls went to my mother-in-love’s house to be crafty and create junk, and they showed me the proper way to thread a bobbin. It was glorious! I have been a sewing fool ever since then. Thank you, Sara Kay!

Tonight, I sat down with my lovely machine, prayed over it (of course), and threaded my bobbin…the correct way. I pulled out the little zip lock bag that held all of the pieces to the pattern and whipped up a dainty little bag for my sister’s birthday. I am totally ruining her surprise but I honestly don’t think she will mind. I tell my sisters everything so I am forced to let them know of my accomplishments. Plus, I am so excited and I just can’t hide it. :] I think she will understand.

COMMANDMENT: check out Gussy, the one who inspired it all! She is amazing. If you love ruffles and all things cute, she is your girl. I’ve decided that I want to be blog BFFs with her. No laughing, it will happen. 🙂

    Hmm I’m having problems with my tension too, but I believe I am threading the bobbin right, I checked the booklet…. Maybe it’s because I’m trying to sew felt.
    Glad your problem is gone and you’ve made such a cute little bag! Makes me want to try that too!
