It’s been a process every day after work learning more about the Kenmore sewing machine. One day I cleaned the dust and opened up compartments. The next day I inserted the needle. Today, I finally got over the hardest part: pulling the bottom thread up with your top thread.

I pressed the foot and fed the fabric to the machine. The other day I practiced on paper doing a straight line. I cut a piece of fabric that seemed to go with a graduation gown. (The person who sold me the machine gave me a huge trash bag of scrap fabrics.)

I figured it out, surprised after feeling like I was stuck on this spot. Does any one have any good sewing projects for beginners?

I can’t wait to take my crochet to the next level with my sewing machine. The one below was handsewn – that took hours. But they would look so good with my friend’s distressed bellbottom denim jeans and organic make up eye liner I found.
