So, it is my daughter's second birthday tomorrow, which I cannot believe. I finally got "Big Little Felt Universe" in the mail and went the store to get all the supplies I needed for my first project. I started making a purse for my daughter to try and give it to her tomorrow. It is definitely not going to work out.
The first step is to sew 4 layers of felt together on two sides. Like an idiot, I started sewing without pinning anything. Already learned my first lesson in sewing. If you don't pin, stuff is going to shift! So I sewed the whole side and at the end every piece of felt ended up not being lined up and were all fanned out.
Next, I pinned all the fabric with safety pins and started sewing again. The first thing I did was not cut enough thread, so I had to tie it off and start with new thread. I sewed all the way to the end, and the next step was to turn it inside out. When I did this all the thread I had sewn started coming out! I cut the thread before I tied it off! What was I thinking?!
Now it is two hours later and I am starting from the beginning. I hope this is not what it is going to be like forever. I guess I couldn't expect much since I have never sewn in my life. Not even patches on my jackets. My husband can do that, and I cannot. I am a sad individual.
I have to finish it, though. I always start projects and never finish them. I told myself I would use this blog to keep myself in check and from not giving up on things. So, here I go, back to work! Hopefully, I'll have some pictures of the finished product soon! Wish me luck!
