One Christmas a long time ago
Santa brought me the greatest gift!
That's me on Christmas day with my brand new
Holly Hobby sewing machine.
I sewed many a make-up bag for my teenage sisters and thier friends
with that baby.
I'm pretty sure I was in third grade there.
After I mastered the battery operated chain-stitch machine I took a
Singer sewing course at the local mall and made the most hideous
outfit ever - complete with a pinking shear accident on the sleeve.
It was nasty!
The instructors made me model it in the year end fashion show regardless.
Thankfully I didn't give up after the pinking shear incident
but rather found a love for creating and carried on.
Where did you get your start?
What are your first creative memories?
