My New Summer Hobby

For years I have wanted to learn how to sew. Well actually, learn a second time. Way back when the school systems could afford extra programs I took a home economical class. We learned how to balance a check book, cook and sew. I purchased my first sewing machine a little over a month ago. I had not had any time to even take it out of the box till now. Summer break is here, and nursing books are being put away for now.

So today I broke the new machine out of the box. Ran to Jo-Ann Fabrics and bought some starter sewing items. I bought enough fabric to make a belt, tote bag and maybe a little something else after that.

So here is what I made today, a belt. Not bad for my first time really sewing. I think I did pretty good. Maybe I'll tackle the tote bag tomorrow.
