Me too! I feel disorganized now  Cheesy

I think it should already be 2011.  In my mind, it already is.

Seriously.. watching everyone's lists is SOOOO bad for mine! I keep wanting to add things but if I do that, I'll never get it all done! Smiley

Can anyone recommend some easy sewing projects for someone with absolutely no sewing aptitude?  I really, really, really want to learn but I always muck it all up.

when i started sewing i tried to make clothes but mucked it all up as well.  then i had some success with curtains and pillows.  you can try aprons, i love aprons.  also, kids clothes are easy.  no curves, lol.

I agree--start with non-clothing first...maybe a fleece blanket for the little one, a cute apron...One Yard wonders has some cute and easy patterns to do---also, sewing for Dummies by Simplicity...do you have a machine or will you be getting one?

ahem--as Clothing Moderator, I must plug the Kids Clothing Board---there are some outstanding members who share the easiest of kids clothing!  I learned a few things even though I have been sewing for over 45 years!

I think the first sewing project I ever did was a grocery bag holder tube thingy for putting grocery bags in so you can use them later in your garbage cans.. know what I mean?

However when I teach people to sew, I have them make a reusable grocery bag... this way they have instant gratification.
I also like the lined zipper pouches... there's a tutorial here on Craftster for the http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=317558.0 that is a great confidence builder...

Having said all of that my sewing skills improved 1000% after I bought a rotary cutter, a few rulers and a cutting mat... I couldn't sew a straight line before when I was cutting things out with scissors  Cheesy

ahem--as Clothing Moderator, I must plug the Kids Clothing Board---there are some outstanding members who share the easiest of kids clothing!  I learned a few things even though I have been sewing for over 45 years!

lol!  It was funny seeing your original post vs your modified post. Tee hee!

An apron is actually a really good idea. I don't know what it is about sewing but my hand/eye coordination is rotten.  Aprons actually seem like they could be do-able.. Thanks for the book recommendations, too!  

I have a machine but to be honest, my husband uses it way more than I do.  Actually, HE needs to be the one to undertake the sewing projects around here. He has the knack for it that I don't.

Yarn or Fabric - Isn't it funny? I own all those things and still sew like a preschooler! Cheesy  Thanks for the grocery bag link, too, though it totally seems more complicated than an apron!

My friend and fellow artist Lance sews!  He uses his skills in his art but he can also make simple bags, repair his t-shirts, and free-form quilting!

You could do baby bibs...or, you can swap with a friend who sews... Cheesy
