* Sewing

Learning
Pasito a pasito

Como dije anteriormente, me lo he tomado en serio y a ratitos libres estoy practicando con la máquina de coser. El pedal y yo no nos llevamos muy bien pero nos vamos conociendo. Todavía no he fundido el motor aunque ya he atascado la canilla dos veces. La buena noticia es que conseguí arreglarlo sola y sin romper nada (no era para tanto, sólo hilo enrollado). Ya me salen las costuras rectas así que la próxima clase será un dobladillo, a ver si consigo mantener la distancia o me mareo al borde del precipicio.

Estoy muy orgullosa.
Learning
One stitch at a time

As I told you previously, I took a serious step towards learning how to use the sewing machine in my spare time. The foot control pedal and I are just getting acquainted, still not in a friendly relationship. I didn't break the motor yet but already clogged the bobbin case twice. Good news is I was able to fix it alone (it wasn't that bad, only too much wrapped thread). I can make straight seams now so the next class will be trying to sew a hem. Let's see whether I can keep the distance with the edge or get dizzy over the cliff.

I am so proud!

  1. And you've got every right to be proud! Yay! You will love how fast you can make clothes and other projects. Soon your sewing machine will seem like an old friend, and you will grab a drink and have a nice long chat with her, then miraculously you will have a beautiful project finished! Ah, the life of a seamstress is very similar to the story of Cinderella. LOL. Love your fabulous stitching!
    It's raining and cold, perfect for laundry, lol.
    Have a lovely week!

    1. If only ironing wasn't a must when sewing! I can't wait to try and make some simple things to see what I'm capable of. My goal is being able to sew sleeveless shirts for the summer but I know I have a long road ahead. Ah, but practicing is so much fun! :-)
      Enjoy your rainy day and stay crafty indoors!

  2. Yo diría que progresas adecuadamente, paciencia y kilómetros de máquina y cuando te quieres dar cuenta, ya tienes el título, "coso porque quiero, puedo y me gusta". Mi máquina tiene una pata de doble arrastre, que ayuda muy mucho a no torcerse...
    Un beso.

    1. Uy, pata de doble arrastre... ¡yo eso no sé lo que es! Tengo que investigar porque si hay ayuditas para coser recto sin esfuerzo me interesa. :-)
      Besos.
