A sewing machine makes all the difference

My mom and grandmama got me a sewing machine for Christmas.  I was so excited!  Grandmama gave me a quick tutorial on threading it and how to read the book (cuz you HAVE to read the book).

So my first sewing project was inspired by this blog.

I dug out my old button-down shirts that don’t fit me anymore and got busy…

I’ll probably keep one or two, but I think I’ve found another great gift!
