Merry Christmas!This holiday was a quiet one for me. And I couldn’t have been more happy. My mom and I made Christmas dinner and just stayed home. No visitors and we didn’t have any obligations to go anywhere. It was a nice and welcome change from the normal hustling and bustling around in an attempt to see everyone and their cousin and their kids and…you get the picture.
I received some really cool gifts, but my most favorite is my new sewing machine!
I’ve been wanting a sewing machine for awhile and was so ecstatic when I opened it! I bought some fabric and immediately dove into learning all about my machine and stitches. My go-to guide for all things has been Tilly and the Buttons. Her blog has a beginner’s sewing section that has been so great at teaching me the basics.
I’ve already completed my first project. The Brigitte scarf, one of Tilly’s beginner patterns.
It was pretty simple and turned out super cute!
I ordered her book, Love at First Stitch, and can’t wait to get it and create some more.
Are you a seamstress? Have any recommended beginner patterns? Or books/ blogs that can help a beginner? Let me know!!
