Sewing class #2

Yesterday was my second sewing class and I had so much fun.  Much better than the first class, when we just had to sit and listen to the teacher talk and didn't even get to touch a machine.  First thing we did yesterday was some "paper" sewing (no thread, just practicing sewing along lines on a piece of paper), to get the hang of the sewing machine.  I brought along my mom's machine, which I had used in the past, so this was a little boring for me.  Not to mention that the machine apparently didn't like sewing without thread.  It kept beeping and stopping every few seconds, sort of like how your car beeps at you when you don't put on your seat belt, so that was a little frustrating.

After the paper sewing we started on our first project - a little fabric bag (sort of like a grocery bag).  It was fun to actually start making something, and I got pretty far with my bag, but we didn't have time in class to finish.  So now I have some homework to do.  I told Carey last night that I was going to have a hard time getting anything else done today, because I just wanted to sew!  Also, I want to finish up what she showed us in class before I forget it, because we didn't receive any written instructions - she just demonstrated each step.  Although she didn't have time to demonstrate how to attach the handles, so I guess I won't be able to complete my bag for another 2 weeks (no class next week).  Then it's onto pajama pants! :)
