Sewing is hard. Well it's hard for me. I'm not super patient. And sewing patterns are confusing. When I can't figure out what something means (even after googling it) sometimes I get scary and yell or curse for no reason. I'm sorry B and Hobie. Thanks for trying to encourage me not to quit even if I was mean to you at the time, I do appreciate it. I baked you some cookies yesterday to make up for it.
BUT NOW I CAN CROSS OFF #5 ON MY 30 FOR 30 LIST!!!!!!!!!!
After working on it most of the day on Saturday, I completed my Christmas-themed apron. It has some major flaws and I cannot sew in a straight line to save my soul (although my sewing teacher did give me some tips-I probably need to sign up for that 2nd class). I definitely should have used red thread instead of black so all my flaws didn't show as much, but oh well. It still looks pretty good from far away and most people probably won't even notice the issues it has unless they are looking for them.
So I have decided that I will pull out this apron every year at Christmas and see how much my sewing skills have improved (hopefully). Now I have to plan my outfit for the Holiday social I'm hosting on Wednesday around this apron. (I've got to get as much use out of it as I can before Christmas is over.)
