Much to my mom's delight, I've been sewing. Appropriately, my first project on my "new" machine was, indeed, hemming pants. But, I've since moved on to more fun and exciting things. Like curtains for the nursery. I'm super excited about how they turned out and I smile every time I walk by the nursery and see them.
I learned to do a blind hem. I imagine this will be quite useful in the future, but it's a little tricky and quite nerve-wracking. Fortunately, it turned out okay.
Scout supervised the process, lending her extensive expertise when needed
Sewing on the buttons. This was the last step and I was really excited to get them on, put the curtains up, and be done with it.
The finished product. Really, I think it turned out super cute, if I do say so myself. And look, you can get an idea of the wall color.
And a close-up so you can admire the adorableness.
