  1. Finding your blog is absolutely timely, as I consider that I really need to learn to sew and do it well. What an interesting post!

  2. So much great information! Now I just have to dust off the ole sewing machine and try to figure out how to use it! LOL

  3. Fantastic instructions! I was a very “challenged” sewer in Home Economics class in Junior High, but thankfully I made up for it in the cooking section of the class. 🙂
