I think I may have a new obsession!! I’m so excited……SEWING!

Not that I really know anything yet, but today I decided that I need to learn to sew. I went to the local fabric store and found a few fun fabrics, came home, and decided that a baby bib would be a good starter project.

So granted, I’ve never really “learned” how to sew, I’ve only played around with a sewing machine a few times, but it was a baby bib (which wasn’t too complicated).

The stitching is a little crooked and it ended up not being as smooth and uniform as I would have liked it to,…but it’s a BIB! And you can pretty much tell it is, right?! I love how it’s two different fabrics.

I didn’t have any needle and thread (I told you I was new to this sewing thing!), so I couldn’t sew on the button and make the buttonhole, but I’ll be finishing that tomorrow,… once I head to the store to make the purchases.

Now, I must take this time to thank Sew and So who has motivated me with all of her many fun sewing projects…and the rest of the blogging world who has constantly posted beautiful projects with gorgeous fabrics…the fabrics are pure motivation, alone, to learn how to sew!!

    Yay!! And yes, it does look like a bib. I like your choice of colors, too!

    Btw, you should check out that BurdaStyle site– has a lot of illustrated how-tos for sewing basics and things like that. And I will be more than happy to attempt to answer questions!
