Do any of you sew? Well I am by no means an expert. To tell you the truth, I don’t know if I’d even qualify to be a novice – haha! But last month when I went to the INKcredible Impressions Fall Fest I was completely inspired by these Spice Cake fabric pumpkins made by fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Donna R.
She provided the step by step instructions on how to make them and I thought, hey I can do that!
So I borrowed a sewing machine from my friend Deb. It took me 2 days to thread the needle on the darn thing; like I said I am brand new at this…then the kids came home from school, so my project was put on hold until the next day. Anyhow I finally have some time, everything all set, press the peddle, all ready to make my super cute fabric pumpkin…. and then the machine didn’t work. Can you believe it?? I called Deb… went through the user manual..no luck, the darn machine didn’t work. So after 3 days of setting up the sewing machine I ended up sewing the pumpkin by hand – lol! Oh well, at least I gave it a try! Here is my cute little pumpkin.
What do you think?? I think it came out alright considering it is my first ever sewing project! Hey if I can do it, you certainly can too!
And even though things didn’t go well with the sewing machine, Donna said she would help me find a sewing machine that is right for me. Which means more simple sewing projects are in my future – be on the lookout!
I guess the moral of the story is that at least I stretched out of my crafting comfort zone and tried something new! What new crafting project have you wanted to try? Let me know in the comment field below.
