I'm such a little seamstress!

Ok well the title isn't exactly true. My mom gave me her old sewing machine, because I really want to learn to sew. The other week-end Eric pulled it out for me to try it out. Now this sewing machine is quite old, as you will be able to tell from the pictures. When Eric opened it up, the first thing he said was, "It smells like the 70's!" Let me tell you, he wasn't lieing. It's pretty awesome. Anyways, I read the instructions and got that thing going. Eric thinks it's cool that I want to get into sewing, so he took some pictures. I'm a little embarrased to put these pictures up, because I look pretty gross. I hadn't gotten ready for the day yet! Anyways, here are some sewing pictures!

Me posing with the machine. I think my face is saying, "I'm smiling for you but I really don't want be!"

Here I am trying to understand the directions from the 70's. I eventually got them.

Trying out the machine! Look at me go...

The end product of what I started to make that day. Isn't it so cute? I'm pretty proud of myself for doing this. Hand stitching those letters is hard. It isn't easy making them look good!

I love your guys' costumes. :) So cute. I'm sooo lame that I haven't called you back yet. I love how that turned out. I want to sew so bad...and I've been so busy. Sigh. I will call you (trust me I think about it often!)

I am SO impressed! Is it a place mat? It's REALLY cute! I need to start sewing on my machine too.
