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!
