Simplicity 2830 #1


Well, this project is my official foray into the sewing world.  I picked this project for a couple of reasons. First it is supposed to be easy. Second, it looked like it would give me the opportunity to learn a few things, and not just practice sewing a seam or two.  This project has a ZIPPER!!! (I know… but it’s the little things in life that make it worth wild, right?)  While cutting out the fabric and reading the pattern instructions I got a little nervous, but just like my knitting, since I don’t know how hard things really are, I use that ignorance to my advantage and just jump head first into things.

My intention is to keep an online journal of each of my projects.  I haven’t been as committed to this endeavor in my knitting, but I think it’s a good habit to get into. For each project I will detail the pattern I use, the fabric, and special skills I plan on learning to complete the project and various notes along the way.

So this was where I was last night when I packed it in:

  1. Purchased pattern, fabric and notions;
  2. Put together project board;
  3. Cut out pattern and fabric;
  4. Wound the bobbin and threaded my machine;

Tonight I think I might actually start working on putting it together.
