I went ahead and ordered a sewing machine for myself, and thanks to Amazon Prime, had it delivered the very next day! Of course…I’ve been working on finishing up my crocheted blanket for the baby, so I haven’t actually touched the sewing machine since I took it out of the box, but I’m really excited to have one of my own! (I got the Brother Innov-is 10a Anniversary edition.) I’m especially excited to already have a good idea of how it works, thanks to borrowing Ariane’s for a few weeks.
As it turns out, the bassinet we are borrowing from a friend has a very specific size – 82 x 43 cm – and while it’s good that it’s a bit larger size, it means I’ll have to buy name brand fitted sheets for it. I’m pretty sure I can make a fitted sheet easily enough with my new sewing machine. This tutorial from Fabric Robot seems to be a good one, so I’ll be trying my hand at that as soon as I can get some good fabric!
I’ve now started a new Pinterest board for collecting my favorite sewing tutorials that I’d like to try. There are also a lot of sewing projects on my Baby Stäbler board, though I might migrate those over to the sewing board at some point.
So Sew much fun!
