Look holes!

I finally got off my lazy butt & did some sewing. Sometimes I see great sales or an item that really catches my eye but it doesn't fit properly or is damaged. Well I buy those items with the intention of sewing it at home. I can do the basics, buttons & sew a line.

I had 2 Zara sweaters purchased a while back, both $3 because they had holes on the side. Absolutely nothing else wrong with them. Well I patched up the hole & it's like new again!

I've always wanted to learn to take my sewing to the next level. i.e. go from making pillow cases to making a dress from scratch.

I remember when I was little, all the dresses I'd wear would be dresses that my mom made. I never appreciated it but I wish she was still a sewin mama. I've asked her to teach me but she hasn't done it in over 20 years that she isn't confident she can do it anymore.

I wish I was handy enough to fix holes. I did sew a button back on once...but that's about it!

If you can sew buttons, you can hem! Just try it out
