An alternative title to this post was "Sew, sew, sew your boat."
Back in February, I declared that my new year (birthday) resolution was to learn how to sew. Yesterday, amidst the Snowtober snow storm we had, I had my first class in a cozy shop in Brooklyn.
I'm enrolled in a 4-week introductory class, which covers the basics, and in which we are making a pair of pajama bottoms and a change purse.
Yesterday we went through some basics about patterns, cuts, and a introduction to the sewing machine.
I chose Liberty of London Forget Me Not fabric.
This was a pricey choice for something that I will probably butcher, but I justified it by noting that the flannels some of my classmates were choosing were more expensive. Ha ha.
With my bobbin loaded, I'm ready for week 2.
