I finally got out my new sewing machine and I am definitely in love...so far. This machine was about $50 dollars more than the last one, and it has so many more features that I know I am going to love. It is computerized and has speed control. Yay!! I have NOT touched the tension dial and I don't plan on any time soon!
Before tackling Ava's quilt again, I wanted to do another small project. I made Ava a tank top the other night from a pattern by Heidi and Finn. It turned out pretty good. It is lined so it feels like a nicer end product but I also realized I want a serger :o) There is a ruffle attached to the front. This was the first time I attempted a ruffle. It lays a little wonky but I still think it's pretty cute. Next time I will know a little better how to deal with the ruffle.
One thing is for certain, it's a darn good thing that my family doesn't have to rely on me making all our clothes because I am very sssllllooooooooowwwwwww.
