Maiden Voyage

I finally had some time to play with my new toy. I picked some fabric from my stash and whipped up an apron. I followed the “pattern” for a vintage apron in Amy Karol’s Bend-the-Rules Sewing.

The no-foot-pedal thing was freaky at first. I felt off-balance and rushed. And then I realized that I was trying too hard — that this machine doesn’t need as much guidance as my old one. Once I realized that and relaxed, it got easier. I don’t know if I will stick with the no pedal configuration but it is interesting.

Here is D. modeling the final product:

I like the pocket best:

I’m smiling. The thing I learned about sewing machines, jigsaws, and most other mechanical tools is to let them do the work. I’m appreciating that you made an APRON first. Very poetic, dontcha think? (Especially now that you can look back a whole year) Really ties in with the site redesign, too. :-)
