I’m finding notes around the house today that Dave left:
This is my avocado hide-away-inside-a-table sewing machine that I bought for cheap from my college writing professor. We’re working on our relationship right now. Me and sewing have never been a great match – in high school I sewed the waistband of my pajama pants shut (twice) and the hood on a shirt backwards. I made a skirt, too. I never wore it. I’m not sure it really was wearable.
In any case, me and old Avocado here are trying to be friends. I hemmed a few curtains a few weeks ago that actually turned out pretty good. My standards of “pretty good” are definitely different than my sewing-amazing mom, who made all our Easter dresses every year and is just plain awesome. But the curtains are hemmed. Straight (I think). And they’re being used, which is more than I can say for that high school skirt. I even own three spools of thread now – black, navy blue, and white. Big stuff.
I do need to figure out if this machine can wind a bobbin. I’m not seeing how, so right now I have to spool the bobbin manually. Funsies.
Do you sew? I’ll keep you updated if I decide to tackle anything more ambitious than a straight hem. We’ll see!
