I am in no way good at it yet but i have sewn an apron with an embroidered ornament so there is at least something. However, I am going to continue with this and get better at it. I’ll just have to specify the goal for it to be better achievable (which hopefully means more encouraging for me at the same time). 1 day ago

How I did it: I read a lot of blogs that talk about sewing and refashioning clothes. And then I practiced on cheap clothes I already own, or I bought $1 finds from Goodwill.
What I really wanted to learn was how to refashion the clothes I already own so they fit better or are a better style for me. I cannot afford to go out and buy expensive clothes (or even average priced). I like to go to thrift stores a lot and I sometimes see something I like that is too big, now I know how to make it fitted! Read how I did it… 1 month ago
i completed three long-overdue sewing repair jobs today. i was only going to do one, but then i figured since i had the needle and thread out i’d carry on. feeling pleased with myself.
what i’d really like to do is learn to use patterns to make dresses for myself. and to know how to use a sewing machine (and eventually own one of my own). my mum used to do this, maybe she can help me with this goal. 1 month ago
because I’m desperate to clean up my gigantic list a bit.
I can definitely say I have learned the very basics (I can get different pieces of cloth to stick together and such). It looks rather poor so far, but it’ll get better in time…
And to progress more I really need to fix my sewing machine and learn to work with it (so far I’m a self-educated hand sewer haha).
But, yeah, done! 1 month ago
At the moment I am making a baby quilt from some fabric that was given to me. So far all the pieces are cut out. I just have to sew them together, put in some padding, as well as a backing. All of which I hope to finish in the near future. 1 month ago
