I had the pleasure of having a friend come over for her first lessons in sewing the other day. We put some tea on and drank at least five cups each. We skipped all the boring stuff and went straight to the good part, which would be my first mistake! Nonetheless, it was so much fun. She did a fine job, considering it was her first encounter with a sewing machine. They can be very intimidating if you've never sewed before. We decided to do something festive and fun, so stockings seemed pretty simple. We enjoyed our tea and laughed every step of the way! After a couple minutes she got comfortable and managed to finish her first project. I was crippled by laughter when she held up her finished product...a perfect little stocking.....which looked more like a golf club cover. It was fantastic! After adding some nice designs, she was very proud of her finished product!!
Perhaps my teaching skills aren't very good, but I documented our little craft session anyway! You better believe we will be doing this again sometime real soon! This is one of my favorite things to do (besides hitting up flea markets), you are always guaranteed to have a great time!
