For a couple of years now, I've said that I was going to learn how to sew. Just shortly after I got pregnant with Natalie I had these grand plans that after she was born, I would learn. She's 18 months old now and I still had not made time for this goal of mine. A few months back Target had a really good deal on a basic Singer model sewing machine. So I bought one. I think that was in January. Last night, it finally came out of the box. I have several friends that are very good at sewing and thankfully they were willing to help this beginner. I've sewn once in my life. That was back in 9th grade home economics, and I made the most hedious looking red blouse with white heart buttons. I wish I still had it just to show you what it looked like, but it either graced the trash or goodwill long ago.
So, last night, thanks to Alissa and April and all of their help, I made my first diaper/tote bag.
It's even got pockets! I like this material for the most part, and I've got more clearance table material that I already cut the pieces out of, so I can give the practice run one more go. But now that I know I won't make a complete mess of it I'll be getting something I really like to make a new diaper bag for baby #2.
Have a great weekend!
