11  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Your earliest sewing memories... chime in! on: July 27, 2015 03:45:10 PM
My paternal grandmother taught me how to hand sew when I was about 5 or 6. She would let me use anything in her scrap basket and I thought it was the best thing in the world! I made Barbie clothes, mostly.
I remember that I thought her Christmas tree skirt would be neat as a skirt for me, so she showed me how to make a circle skirt using the tree skirt pattern- I hemmed it all by hand and it took forever!
I wonder if my mother saved any of the Barbie clothes I made...
My mom and sister saved up enough money ($50) to buy me a used sewing machine from my aunt, and I can't remember what brand it was, but it was a piece of junk and I didn't use it much. My next sewing machine was a Brother, and it was a piece of junk, also. I got a used Singer Fashionmate next, and I loved it! Unfortunately, I lent it to a friend who left it in her house that got foreclosed on Cry I then traded the Brother in for an Elna 1010 in '97 or '98 and that's what I've been sewing with ever since. I love it and I will never get rid of it. I bought a Bernina overlock machine about 7 or 8 years ago, but haven't used it much.

I would potentially join in as a giver depending on timing. I have so many odds and ends around the craft room, but I'm really not sure if I have anything worth sending someone - it's all such random stuff, haha!

I can guarantee that someone will love to have your random stuff!
( I know I would- but then again, that's how I wound up with a craft room full of things I don't use often enough... Tongue )

I woke up at 4:27 this morning thinking about this swap! I can't wait to get started!

Good grief, I hate discussing ongoing swaps... It boggles my mind trying to understand them, but they convinced me to join one a couple of years ago (maybe the ATC swap?) and it was way easier then I thought it would be! All I remember is that I picked a theme from the last person that posted, and then someone picked me. I could claim as many or as few partners as I wanted, and I really liked that. I'll join one if you decide to go that route, but I am hopeless at trying to help explain them  Embarrassed I'm more of a "doer" than an "understander", I guess...

I could organize in August -- if anyone is ready to run with it before then, please do!
(wondering if texscrapper or Belladune want to run another round....)
Yay!  Cheesy I'm starting a collection box right now!

I am too scatterbrained and technologically unadvanced to organise this, so someone else would have to step in... sorry.  Embarrassed

I went away for a long weekend and came back to some great additions to the gallery! I love them all! I think I want to try beadwork on one next time after seeing that beaded Texas!

I received from RovingAnarchist yesterday, but I got busy and didn't post photos. The lighting isn't the best right now, so forgive me:

I couldn't believe it when I saw this patch. Besides being an amazing patch, I have long thought about getting this image tattooed on me because it's one of my favourite Edward Gorey images. Maybe it's a sign...

Look at all of the stitching in the face and scarf:

And if that wasn't enough:

A beautiful sugar skull patch! I bet it took forever to sew all of that detail!

Thank you, RovingAnarchist, for being my swap partner and for making me these great patches!
(Sorry everyone has to crane their necks to look at my patches, but I don't know how to turn these pictures. I took two shots at different angles and tried uploading both of them, but they still show up sideways when I post...)

I recieved from rovinganarchist. My themes were zombies and gore and blood etc, and that's exactly what I got  Smiley

With a name like gala_apples, I would have never expected you to like gory stuff!  Grin

Those patches are really cool! I would have never thought to use doll parts on a patch, now I think I have some ideas for the ziploc bag full (don't ask) of Barbie hands and feet I have...
