  I really never learned how to sew during my formative years, due to a fear of the sewing machine and a preoccupation with knitting. I've wanted to learn though, and when my mother let me steal her sewing machine, I set about to teaching myself. Three wounds, eight broken needles, two frustrated tantrums, and several yards of fabric later, I managed to hobble together something that I can more or less hang off of my person in the semblence of clothing!



    They are simple, they have extremely obvious and visible seams, and they're so huge it's ridiculous, but I am still very excited about them.

   Thanks for looking!

im a beginner as well and self taught. i was very intimidated and terrified of my machine and still am terrified of patterns lol
but everyone has to start somewhere and even if this first piece isnt perfect i am sure you learned a bit from the experience and thats what matters most

just keep trying and learning and before you know it things come together so much easier
cant wait to see what you try next
