I couldn't find my stash of material in my garage so I started sewing dishtowels. I am lucky that that my mom used to sew and quit. I have her old sewing storage thing and all of her old thread, needles, electric scissors, and all this other random stuff.
I ventured into my garage and under some boxes under some other boxes, I finally found my cloth stash. Soon, I made my first sachet using floral material from my friend @Gretchen. I had some lace in my art room. I also found a bag of lavender and chamomile. I then stuffed the sachet with lemon basil from my Aerogarden.
I made a few more sachets and a really hideous- looking scarf. Right now, I am just practicing sewing straight and not so fast. I realize that it is going to take a while before I am making my nephew a little suit. (He would look adorable in a little tux.) I do hope that I can make his next Halloween costume. My cousin Julia, who also got a machine for Christmas, and I are planning on taking a few sewing classes at Joanne's. I have a lot to learn!
