Sew Fantastic!

Pangga surprised me with a gift last Friday. One that I've really wanted for a long time. It's a sewing machine! He is "sew" fantastic and "sew" thoughtful. sengihnampakgigi

SURPRISE! celebrate

I love it! I've been wanting to sew and alter some clothes but it's too tiresome to do it by hand. The biggest "project" that I managed to do last year was a simple blouse for the RenFaire. I totally just hand-stitched this, so it took me awhile to finish it. (More photos of the blouse here.)

Now that I'm learning to use my sewing machine, I will
be able to make more costumes or alter clothes faster.

More BIG HUGS to Hubby, of course. Thanks B!

My sister said I sounded like my mom now with all the sewing, cooking & gardening I do. Well, all I've got to say is, "Thanks a lot, Ma! I've really learned a lot from you. "

  1. Oh boy, I just talked to my Mom about sewing the other day.
    I would love to be able to do it, but I'm just plain too stupid.
    Those machines hate me. :D
    Glad you got your wish granted.
    You seem to be able to make lovely clothes, I love that blouse!!
    Wishing you a great week :)

  2. I wish I can learned how to sew as well, because looking for alteration shops here is not only hard but also expensive.good for you!

  3. Wowowee! I had to see the other photo on the other link post! You are "sew" talented! For all that patience hand sewing this outfit is just so remarkable for you. Hehehe! I can sew only straight stitch, maybe curtains and pillowcases. Enjoy and make the most out of it. Maybe in the next RenFaire, you will have a stall! Good luck!
