Hey, give me a break! I haven't had Home Economics since I was 16 and I'm almost 40, so you do the math!
Can you even imagine sitting in a class like this? They truly look interested and ready to start sewing!
I was never very good at this thing called sewing anyway. I remember I passed the class but barely. We had a final project that counted for like 95% of our grade! We were to make an outfit that we could actually wear! So basically a skirt and a shirt. Mine was heinous! I don't even think I would have been caught dead in that thing! I know I screwed the buttons up and one collar was a little longer then the other. Not to mention the fabric was stiff and blue with thin white stripes.
In no way shape or form did my skirt look as cute as this one!
Do you remember being a kid and getting your very own sewing machine for Christmas? The idea of sewing a pot holder was the greatest thing ever. Ok, that and collecting Lisa Frank stickers but I digress!
The kids have one week left of school so I knew I couldn't wait any longer to get these done. I decided yesterday I would give the old, well rather brand spanking new sewing machine for a ride and sew me some curtains. Ok, not really the whole set but rather add a band of color at the bottom.
Proof that I really did in fact use a machine!
Here they are!
How do people do this thing called sewing? I think I must be going blind or in desperate need of bifocals. I can't sew a straight line to save my life! And I'm almost positive Gus our bird will be spitting out some not so pretty words soon. I wasn't about to hold my tongue since the kids were gone.
I need to order me a copy of this and quick!
Whatever you do, if you happen to stop by for a visit, do not, I repeat, "Do not turn my curtains over and check my stitching!" I swear there will be serious consequences!
I had my husband move the rod up higher so they could kind of puddle the floor!
I purchased curtains from Target and decided to go to Hobby Lobby and purchase black burlap to add the band at the bottom. What do you think?
I think I need to bring the Cheers down a little because now it looks too high!
I'm not ready for any requests at the moment but give me a couple more tries at it and anythings possible!
Off to my nephew's high school graduation this weekend!
Hope you all have a pleasant one!
