So a few weeks ago I told my mom that I was thinking of getting a sewing machine this year, and since she's fabulous at quilting and making clothing and all that jazz, I would appreciate her advice. This past weekend I went home to visit and she said, 'let's go looking, just to get an idea of what's out there.'

So three guesses as to who now has a new sewing machine that they spent too much on and aren't quite prepared for? The first two guesses don't count.

Now I just need to figure out what to make.

FinallyI'm going to steal this from Thornescratch...

mm, Swedish? Looks nice! How does it feel under the foot? :3

For your first thing I'd recommend something simple (I seem to remember you starting off knitting with washcloths and scarves).When I first learnt to sew I made things like pencil cases, drawstring bags and pillowcases before moving onto very simple patterns like elastic-waist shorts and T-shirts. But if there's something more complicated that you really want to make, go for it! Just, you know, measure twice cut once, pin pin pin, and don't rush ;)

And use patterns! They're very handy :)

oooh what a cool glove! I like the colour and the cabling pattern :3
