So I totally have never used our sewing machine because it's been around 3 years since I've sewn (besides quick hand-stickting) so we since have gotten a new machine and I was like "WHAT AM I DOING?" SO many test pieces! I couldn't find the instruction booklet so I wasn't sure what all the dials were, haha. Lots of trial and error, that's for sure!
Got my fabric today...and literally spent over 2 hours choosing. Goodness I could not choose! I think I'm going to cut out the pieces tonight but i can't sew since it's 1am and it would wake everyone up.
