Last weekend when I returned from North Carolina, I brought back my late Grandmother's sewing machine. I was getting a little tired of baking cakes in a jar to pass my time so I thought I would learn how to sew! This past week I went to a fabrics store and bought a VERY easy project to attempt, an apron. I say very easy because I didn't have to get the fabric or pattern or anything, the fabric had each pattern already on it, I just had to cut it out!
Why is the title of this post Sewing Fail Number One? My first hiccup with my sewing project was winding the bobbin. Not so much winding the bobbin, I suceeded in winding the bobbin, however I had NO clue that there were different sizes of bobbin's when I purchased a set. Of course it was the wrong size! I had to run out to Wal-Mart this afternoon to grab the correct size, thank goodness for google or I wouldn't have ever figured it out! Since that hiccup though, I have done fairly well in my first sewing project! The apron is coming together nicely! I have stopped sewing for the evening, maybe I will pick it up tomorrow to finish the apron. I am already starting to think of what my next project will be! I think I am leaning towards oven mitts... since I do so much baking :).
On another note, I keep seeing these photos pop up all over the place of people "planking". I had to figure out what this whole craze is about. I still have no clue where it originated, but people are planking EVERYWHERE! I have done plank's in exercise classes and when working out my abs but not sure what the craze is about doing them in public to have your picture taken.
