Back in junior high (I don’t even want to count how many years ago that was!), I loved sewing in home economics. We never had a sewing machine that I used at home, but I really did love it and was pretty good at following the tutorials. I made my own wheat bag and a nice little tote too, among other things! Well, I’ve had my “One Day I Will Sew” board brewing on Pinterest and have accumulated 74 pins. Seventy-four. There’s ~8 weeks left until baby and I want to start BEFORE s/he comes! Jay bought me a sewing machine for my birthday, back in April…and it sits untouched! Also, it’s one of my 30 before 30 goals, so I need to get on this!
So I call on you, my sewing friends, bloggers, and readers! Give me your tips! I haven’t even looked at these pins yet, but I plan on doing it as soon as this post is published!
I want to do simple things for baby like receiving blankets, burp clothes, and maybe even a car seat cover or something!
Here are my questions, don’t laugh, it’s been almost 2 decades since I’ve sewn!
- I have the sewing machine….what else do I need to buy other than fabric? Spools? Needles?
- Do you have your favorite tutorials pinned or bookmarked somewhere? YouTube?
- Where is the best (Canadian) place to buy sewing stuff?
- Where do you recommend to buy fabric?
- Any and all tips/tricks/advice are appreciated!
I need something to do in my evenings other than being a zombie on the couch getting lost in TV land. I don’t usually go on the internet much at night, that’s what my mornings are for. I want to be productive for this babe and make him/her some things before s/he gets here!
Thanks in advance!
