Brother Free-Arm Sewing Machine with 10 Stitches.
So far I am loving this machine. You should know, I don't actually really know anything about sewing so I don't have anything to compare it to. I was able to thread the bobbin and the needle and actually get started sewing in about 45 minutes. I think that was pretty good because I'm not the best at following directions (hence why I like cooking better than baking-less important that you follow recipes exactly in cooking). The instructions have pictures and are pretty easy to follow.
In comparison to every other machine, this machine was cheap. I was not expecting anything amazing, just a basic beginner sewing machine. I think this machine is going to work for me and help me achieve my dream of one day being able to sew my own apron. I have actually signed up for a month long sewing class. We'll see how that goes. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Since I didn't really know anything about sewing, I decided to just jump in head first. I bought this pattern I found online (it said it was a good bag for beginners). It took me most of last week, but I finally finished my bag. There were a few mishaps but overall I was extremely proud of myself (just don't look at the straps or top too closely). It even has pockets. Hopefully my sewing class will give me some tips on how to do things better and what some of these sewing words mean (I had to google a bunch while making this bag).
In other, unrelated news, the dining room table is back to craftland.
