Lily has a go...

September 3, 2014

Well, I've done it.....I've passed on my first sewing machine on to my daughter Lily.  It's the basic Jenome 2200XT machine I took on holiday last year to practice the first made to measure challenge is now her's.  It's a simple, light weight and perfect for her.


Now I understand how my mum felt when she was teaching me how to sew.

Gosh you need a lot of patience!

 

Our session went like this:


Me: Lily I've set up the machine for you, do you fancy having a go?

Lily: No, I'm playing minecraft

Me: Come on, it's easy.  I'll show you how to make a bag

Lily: (groan) Okay


I show her how to sew a straight line, then go back into the kitchen to wash up.


Lily: Muuuuuuuuummmmmmmmm, I've gone off the side.


I fix it.


Lily: Mummmmmmmmmm, I've done it again


I fix it, this happens about 5 more times.


Lily: Muuuummmmmmmmmmmm the thread thingy has come out.


I re-thread the machine.  It kind of goes on like this for the next hour, me dipping in and out and fixing mistakes.  I guess this is pay back for all the times I did the same to my poor mum!


Eventually after seruouslt considering sending her to sewing classes (no mine!) she finished. 


This is what she made - How proud am I?
