  • Haven't sewn anything for my self lately. Did make a highchair seat cover about 2 years ago for my GD. Didn't turn out to bad considering I even made my own pattern. Good luck on your project. You'll have to post a pic when it's done.

  • I like to make my own purses and decorative patches... I'm currently working on the cat that pepe le pew (sp?) was always chasing. Everything I sew is done by hand though.... I couldn't use a sewing machine if my life depended on it. It always bunches up in knots under the fabric... pretty on top but not so much below.

  • I was JUST thinking of taking another quilting class! I haven't tried to do the quilting thing for 9 years and am not sure how to use the machine anymore either..... Good luck! It sounds fun... I haven't made a dress since I made my maternity dress 26 years ago!
