Sew....I Think I'll Start a New Hobby....

I feel like a real wife now.  I have a sewing machine. :)

My mom asked me if I wanted a new purse or wallet for my birthday, but instead I told her that I would really like a sewing machine.  I'm not exactly sure where this strange desire came from, but I have a beautiful new machine and ZERO sewing skills to go with it.  My mother in law also gave me some wonderful sewing accessories for Christmas so now I'm equipped to start some new projects.  I'm thinking I'll get started with some napkins, maybe a table runner or even panel curtains.  I also need to pick the fabric for our headboard so I can finally finish it! 

Does anyone know of any good blogs or resources for patterns and inspiration for a beginner?

Make it and love it had SO many amazing tutorials. It had got me sewing! I also know a few other sites, but I'll have to check my computer bookmarks. Love you!

I just found this girl a few months ago and she's really inspirational and seems to have some of your same style. Probably not great to follow as a beginner but definitely fun ideas to try on your old clothes.

My sister in law would be much more excited about reading this blog entry than me, but I am excited for you too! She's a sower with a passion, and blogs about it a lot on her blog, so here you go: http://thelovelylittlethings.blogspot.com/ she usually posts tutorials or patterns with it. You should browse through some of her back logs. Happy sewing!
