My second project with the sewing machine (AKA: my lover). It is a sweet little eyeglass case! I don't have any supplies to make anything from a pattern, so I just came up with this little guy on a whim.
The case is lined with soft, green felt. I sewed two circles of felt and a tiny, yellow button on the front to add a bit of prettiness.
I really need to get some supplies to make some projects from a couple books that I have had collecting dust. I have had Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol for ages, but haven't been able to do any of the projects without a sewing machine. I absolutely can't wait to go out and get some more fabric! There are seriously the cutest projects ever in that book. I am going to make everyone aprons and elf hats for Christmas next year. Just you wait. It's going to be awesome.
Is it weird that I get seriously giddy whenever I start sewing something? I love the sound the sewing machine makes, and it truly sparks my creativity - I love the idea that there are a million things just waiting to be made. And all it takes is me to create them. I remember being twelve (which is probably the last time I used a sewing machine before now) and feeling amazed by the fact that all it took was a bit of fabric and this machine, and you could actually make something beautiful with it.
It still amazes me.
I told Jay that this sewing machine is going to change my life. And I was serious. Who knows? I have a lot to learn, but the learning is going to be so much fun. That much I know.
