A Beginning Sewer's Must-Have!!!

I got this book from Barnes and Nobel a few years ago when I was still a novice at sewing.

Its GREAT!!!

The color pictures really help you to see each step that they go thru and they cover a lot in this book.

They cover topics and pics of:
your sewing machine
the serger
reading the pattern
fabrics, tools/accessories

and a whole lot more even pillows, drapes and bed covers.

Its an awesome reference book to have.

On a sewing frenzy!!!!

Man it seems like I have been on the floor cutting, and sitting at my sewing machine forever!!!

I have sewn myself a shirt, my youngest daughter a uniform, as well as my oldest daughter.

Now I'm working on an outfit for myself which includes a jacket, pants, and a tam.


I did the outside of the jacket and now I have to do a whole nother jacket for the lining. Thats what I hate, having to resew the entire thing for the lining.

Ah well it'll be nice once its done.

Heres a pic of the uniform I made for my youngest.
