The process of learning to sew is rather painful for me. I am more or less learning by trial and error. The classes I took were fun and I did learn some things but I really did not learn foundational concepts so I am finding that I make alot of errors because I just don't know what to do when. I am currently signed up to take a Sewing for Babies and Toddlers class which begins at the end of February; however, I got a list of the "skills needed" from the instructor and between you and me, I am not ready for this class. So, I am looking into working with a lady one-on-one to get the help I need so that I can get ready...stayed tuned for more on that!
In the meantime I have a little something to show you. I got two of these cute towels for Christmas from my sweet aunt Joyce.
When I went to JoAnn's after Christmas I discovered pom pom trim! What a fabulous invention...I see lots of pom pom trim in my future! I'm having visions of ways I can put pom poms on all of Olivia's clothes....oh, I digress. Anyway, so at JoAnn's I found Christmas pom pom trim for 90% off so I had to get some so I could experiment with sewing it onto things.
Voila! Here is how it turned out:
