Last night I took my first machine-sewing class at Bits of Thread in Adams Morgan. If you’ve ever considered taking sewing lessons or are just going cross-eyed looking at the manual for your machine, it’s worth an evening to get started the right way.
Stephie from Thrift and Style joined me and a small group of funny, funny ladies. Here she is practicing on paper before we started our take-home project:
And here’s my finished project! It only took an hour and two sewing machines (I’m that lucky):
And it’s reversible! I can’t wait to put some useful items in there. My thanks to teacher Valerie, who made everything seem so easy!
P.S. I’m a busy bee prepping for Modern Vintage tomorrow night! I’ve got apps, the punch ingredients, a batch of Blondies, and some gorgeous new vintage pieces ready for you to check out. See you then!
