My first take up job!

So I know sewing hems for pants is not rocket science but it was a first.  I was asked to shorten a pair of overalls this weekend of course only a few hours before they were to be worn.  :)  I went an bought new sewing machine needles and measured twice so I could cut once.  They came out fabulously!  This tiny project bolstered my sewing courage and I think I am going to have to make my sewing machine cover sometime this week... or maybe a Christmas tree skirt that has been on my to-done list for a year! 

What tiny project has gave you great satisfaction or encouraged you to step out in unknown areas?

  1. Let me guess? It was for a brother?! They are alway notorious for having last minuete projects!
    Yey for you!! It can be a little nerve racking to cut the fabric off, even though I have done a zillion.....

    When I started doing embroidery, it was like hey I can do this!! Love that feeling.
