Another sewing machine!

I saw it online for a few days, was priced very cheap, and I wonder why but decided that I wanted it, to my surprise when I contacted the owner, she texted me back the address with a messages that read “I’ll leave it for you at this place ×××, just come and get it”. I didn’t have to pay, she gave it to me for free.  The first thing I did back home was check what was wrong with it, To my surprise the bobin threader and thread pool were the only things broken nothing else, so I went online, downloaded the manual, fixed those and now it’s working just fine. I’ll use it for light projects because after reading the manual and opening it I discovered that this specific sewing machine was ment for beginners and the motor is tiny.

Our first Quilt

Our first quilt

Not been able to do any out door activity, because of the rainy weather and  not having the resource to take them anywhere, I try to keep my kids busy, because as any other kids they love to  watch TV and play VG, but I always try to involved them in different thins like, helping me making snacks, desert (which they love), and because I like to sew from time to time I asked them if they want to make something or wanted me to make something for them.

This time one of my son’s wanted something different than a stuffed animal, or cloth, he told me that he wanted something bigger, not knowing what to make, I just went and look where I store some of the fabric that was given to me by a neighbor and found that I’ve had few fabric with cartoon prints , I show them to my son and asked him if he likes them, he’s responded affirmatively, we started looking for ideas an came across some quilting images which he like, and we started working immediately.

We first looked  information ONLINE, because I’ve never done it before and I’m not going to lye to you,  it’s  pretty scary as  you  read the information on how to work a quilt, all the #, math and measures, that involved. But it was for my son, so I was ready to give it a try, hopefully he like it at the end.

not finished yet !!!!

quinceanera dress repairs!!!

ahhh!!! what a work, not easy at all to please a teenager this days.  My daughter just turned 15 few days ago, but before that day came, I wanted to make her a dress, a simple one, to take a picture of her, to remember, you know  memories from that only, unique, special day.  I knew that in our situation, I couldn’t make her anything fancy, you see I move with my kids here to the US, about 5yrs now, I think just giving it a guest, well  you get the idea, NO big Family here!!… but still I wanted to be a special day for her, and even if it was just us (her brothers, her, daddy and mommy) I was determine to make her that dress, and of course she had a to give her opinion (the most difficult part) because it was for her, and I knew she was not going to wear it if she didn’t like it, something I didn’t want it to happen after all the work I was going to put in to it. And you haven’t had the experience yet I advice you just to be patience.

1. Mom, I’m not getting married!!! to white!!!

2. I do like purple, but I’m not a lil gril anymore, it looks like a princess dress.

3. Oh! ok!, I like black, touches, finally you’re listening to me.

4. Yep!, looks modern, simple and I can wear it for different occasions. (before 5 we ran out of lace and was a journey trying to find the same lace which sadly we couldn’t find)

5. There’s always a plan – B, and that was the final result of our dress.
