Becoming Crafty

A couple weeks ago I found a sewing machine at a Thrift store for SUPER cheap!IMG_9076 I was so excited! I have been wanting one for a little while so I could do some sewing on my scrapbook pages. The only sewing I have done is in Home Ec in 6th grade and maybe once on my mom’s machine. I just have to say for learning to sew, the internet and YouTube is awesome! I learned how to thread it, set the tension, and get the bobbin all set and threaded too.

So I’ve been playing with it lately. I found a tutorial to make a camera strap cover and the second one I made came out great!IMG_9221 I used the sewing machine to put some stitching on a layout too!IMG_9238 (My friend, Leah, put up a tutorial on how to make those cute paper flowers! Love them!)

So now I have a bunch of ideas on what to do with my new sewing machine! If you have any tips, or easy projects for this newbie, let me know!
