Please excuse the terrible heading I just couldn't help myself! So today I finally got the sewing machine out, set it up on the dining room table and got to work trying to remember how to thread it....It wasn't happening so I searched you YouTube for some helpful videos and I found this video helpful. Sewing machine threaded I got to work trying to sew a straight line, the first few attempts were pretty shocking but after a few attempts I got an okay (ish) straight line. I have a lot to learn though, it's going to be my winter project I think, to get to grips with my sewing machine!! Any hints, tips, or advice are very welcome! I'd love to incorporate some sewing into my artwork. I love the aesthetic of paper with stitching combined with other medias. Has anyone else out there got this sewing machine? I don't have a manual for it which is a shame, and have no idea about tensions/stitch lengths and things like that. So any info would be much appreciated. Okay well good evening all, I will leave you will some photographs taken today..
After a few more goes it was looking much better..! I'm thinking I might make some bunting for my first sewing project, must be pretty simple right?! Watch this space!
