Oh The Places You’ll Go

Lately I’ve had crafting fever.  I keep finding blog after blog after blog of yummy and delicious projects I really want to make.  I’ve also been working on the wardrobe for my hubby’s indie feature they’re filming here in Wilmington.  (The funny part about that is I don’t sew!)  It seems I’m being drawn towards fabric – I even constructed a necklace with flowers I made from recycled fabrics.  

So, yesterday I took the plunge and ordered my very own Janome!  I did a bit of research and could not find a bad thing written about the brand.  Since I’m going to only be doing light sewing and I honestly haven’t used a machine in 20 years, I opted for the Sew Mini (below pic).  Got a great deal on a refurb, factory sealed in it’s original box.  Now I just have to wait the week it’s going to take to get here!

In the meantime I’m going to scour the net for projects to make once it does arrive.  I have a few so far – including a fabric cuff bracelet, a simple petticoat and a reconstructed t-shirt.  I also have plans for a line of jewelry incorporating hand sewn items – flowers, etc.  I’m super excited and I will be sharing my sewing journey with you!

    I’m interested to hear how you like the new machine. I’ve never taken up sewing, but I’ve recently wanted a machine for some simple projects. Congrats on the new purchase!
