Just bought a sewing machine

Postby Cally » Mon Aug 01, 2011 3:11 pm

At last :D Im so excited and I love it. I have wanted one for years. The first day I had it, I set it up and just looked at it (and hugged and kissed it :lol: ) I cant believe I actually have it.
So far I have made a pillowcase dress for Órlaith, it nearly broke my heart but it turned out ok. I will post pics later.
My next project will be a towel dress (not sure the correct name for them) for Saoirse and Órlaith for when we go to Portugal the end of august.
And then another sun dress for Órlaith.
If anyone know any tutorials for clothes that dont require a pattern please share.
In case anyone is interested this is the sun dress I'm going to make next. The towel dress is on this blog as well :D

I'm so glad you're excited about your new machine, Cally! Sounds like you're catching the sewing bug like me. :)

That's a cute dress in the blog you posted. I may have to try that one.

Here's a blog I found recently:


This is where I got my Tinkerbell and Peter pan tutorials for my kids' costumes I'm making this year for Halloween.
