Sewing course

A couple of years back I bought myself a sewing machine. Problem was that moving from Greece to London straight after that, and with nobody to look after my boy and starting our own business (there’s something you didn’t know there) there was no time to get starting on sewing or any other crafts for that matter. Fast forward a couple of birthdays and my friend (who is also a craft wannabe but equally busy to do so) got me as a present this cute Liberty “Sew over it” bag. It had this beautiful silk fabric and beads along with the matching pink thread. It was gorgeous! The simplest kind of project you can ever imagine! One simple straight line! It should be done in NO time. Four months later and a few YouTube videos later, I am still struggling with loading the darn thing! Surely, hobbies are to make you feel good, no? A friend told me about her sewing course and somehow, in this mayhem of working and all else, I started it. I am hoping of writing a little more about the course in the following weeks but for now, I am happy to show my first ever sewing project! 🙂

  1. What a great project! I also have a sewing machine, suitable even for experienced seamstresses but… still trying to find the time to learn how to get the thread correctly in 😦

    1. Do you know, that was exactly my problem!!!! Too many youtube videos that still somehow didn’t make sense! And now, I am making a dress!!!! Love it! It’s SO therapeutic especially when you work from home and life blends in to work a little too much.

  2. Χμμ και εγώ τα ίδια… θέλω να κάνω τόσα πράγματα και με αγχώνει η αρχή! Είχα πάει και σε μια σειρά μαθημάτων ραπτικής και ενώ όλες οι κυρίες εκεί τελείωναν το homework και έφτιαχναν και 2ο σε μια εβδομάδα, εγώ τα άφηνα όλα ημιτελή… μου ερχόταν να σκίσω το διδακτορικό 🙂 Καλή επιτυχία! Έρχονται και Χριστούγεννα, όλο και κάποιο project θα βρεις 😉

    @Popelix άστα και εμένα στο threading o Παντελεήμονας με βοήθησε. Ξέρει από τα home economics classes που έκανε σχολείο. Εμείς οικιακή οικονομία, όλο κάτι χαζομάρες κάναμε.

    1. Είχαμε οικιακή οικονομία? Το έχω διαγράψει από τη μνήμη μου αυτό!
      Αυτό το course δεν έχει homework 😉 μάλλον γι αυτό μ αρέσει.
      Καλώς σε γνώρισα Γεωργία!

      1. Ναι, νομίζω ότι ήταν στο γυμνάσιο. Η ώρα του παιδιού…
        Μου αρέσουν αυτά τα craft courses, αλλά δεν έχω βρει κάποιο αρκετά αργά ώστε να μείνει ο σύζυγος με το μικρό… Καλή συνέχεια… και εγώ χαίρομαι να σε διαβάζω 😉
