Shopping for Sewing!

So my pin curl set yesterday was a total flop.... but I did get to go shopping for Va-Voom Vintage's sew-along! I got some really cute fabric for the vintage apron we are making. And today (after I cleaned out some space in the kitchen for my sewing machine) learned how to use my sewing machine-hopefully well enough to make it through this sew-along!

All of my stuff on my (mostly) clean kitchen table.

The pretty fabric and rick rack I picked out. The pattern only calls for one color of rick rack but I thought I'd switch it up and use two!

My sewing machine! My lovely mother-in-law picked it up at a garage sale for me! All I had to do was dust it and find the manual online.

The pattern I'm going to be making. The sew along is for the red one on the left.

My sewing basket. One of my good friends got it for me for a wedding shower gift. So cute! I'd love a purse in that print.

I can't wait for Friday!


  1. Oh, I'm SO glad that you're joining me!! I love the fabric that you picked. When you're finished, please send me a pic of you in your apron and I'll post it on my blog! xoxo

  2. Oh that reminds me I need to get my materials gathered. I will be sewing along too! I love the fabric you picked!
