knits or cotton?

This is the first time I have made anything out of knit and it was surprisingly
easier then regular cotton. I thought it would be stretchy and get out of shape while sewing but the only thing I did different was use a walking foot.
And the pattern I used was a Butterick fast and easy. It seriously took me only an hour to put it all together. You just cut out 3 pieces.

I do have to say the flowers took a little longer. Those werent part of the pattern I just added them myself.  And it past the final test. I wore it to work and got many compliments. No one even knew that I made it!

This is the pattern....
As you can see the blouse they show is very low cut. I just sew it up the top so I wouldn't be so exposed!

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
