So, I learned how to knit. That was great. I’m not that great at it, but I enjoy it. Here’s the thing about knitting – it takes me forever to finish anything. I’m an instant gratification kind of person so this is somewhat frustrating. If I can’t whip up a scarf in the time it takes me to drive to Target and buy one then chances are pretty good that I’m going to abandon the project. Now sewing is something I think I would like. There’s a machine involved so it’s quicker then my fingers moving about. I could whip up curtains in no time. I could hem something with the touch of a pedal. Mainly though, I want to make these things.
- patchwork shower curtain
- patchwork pillow case*
- tablecloth using IKEA kitchen towels (which I totally own!!)
There’s something about making your own curtains, shower curtain, tablecloth. “I love your [curtains, shower curtain, tablecloth, etc.]!! Where’d you get! Maybe I can get one, too!” “Oh, I whipped that up with some fabric I had around the house.” “Oh.” “Yep, one of a kind. Sorry.”
So, yeah, sewing machine. If anyone wants to help me towards this purchase I am open to accepting Amazon.com gift certificates.
*I don’t know what the patchwork theme is about. I think it comes from the fact that I want to sew a quilt (which is a whole different thing to talk about at a later date). Why I am becoming all down home, let’s hand-make stuff! is beyond me. I’m just going with it. When I start wanting to make my own soap, someone please organize an intervention.
