Happy Friday!

Oh man, what a week!  After I had been given a brand new sewing machine I knew I had to start making something right away.  I picked up some fabric this morning and got to work.  I've never really made clothes before and I've always had problems with sewing machines since my mom's tends to break a lot.  I decided to make a dress, and not an easy one, but I wanted to jump right in.  It's a bit sloppy, but pretty good considering I made my own pattern.  I've still got tons to learn, but I think the best way is to just do it and see what happens!

I used tissue paper to make a pattern.

It's not perfect, but I had to start somewhere...
Now I'm just waiting to pick up my wonderful friend Sarah from the airport.  I can't wait to see her!  I should have some fun pictures to post next week from our adventures.  Happy Friday and happy Halloween!
