I was so excited when I found a pattern that I loved for only $3 at Joanns. I started off using this old 1950s sewing machine that I inherited from my grandma. That worked for about half an evening and then then the machine which probably hasn't been used in 10 years started giving me trouble. I decided after looking a new sewing machines and seeing how many more attachments and features they had over my current one that it was worth the invesment.
I ordered a Singer machine off Amazon and go free two day shipping so it arrived yesterday. So exciting!!
It's definitely a little messy but for a first attempt I'm happy with it. I started remembering little tips and tricks from when my grandma taught me to sew when I was younger. I'm sure I will learn little tips and tricks along the way. I'm going to try making the bigger version of this purse that was included with the pattern.
