New Hobby

It’s been a while! Life can get so busy sometimes & mine is about to get busier! 

I am trying a new hobby – sewing! When I imagine myself as a Mum I always pictured being super hands on, making lots of personal unique memories. Such as making my LR’s world book day outfits or if they were to be in a play the costume they would wear for that. So I am beginning to learn how to use a sewing machine so that by the time I need to be able to do that I will be hopefully some what good at it.

So to start with I am going to be making a apron for messy play time and a matching one half pinny for me. I am then also going to attempt birthday buntin and a pillow. I am hoping that atleast one of them comes out half decent ha! 

Hobby Craft actually offer a lesson in learning how to use the sewing machine for free too which I thought was amazing because the instruction manual is impossible for my mush of a brain to understand lol and I have watched loads of YT videos but each machine is differemt. Confusing stuff!

As I am new to this and don’t know how easy I will find it i got a beginners sewing machine (Link here) I have also pasted the machine features and accessories below too
