Brush Up On or Master Your Sewing Techniques
My Babcią worked many, many years in a sewing factory. She made all of my mother’s clothes, then went on to make my sister and I beautiful matching outfits too. She made bedding, curtains, tablecloths, and more. She of course passed this knowledge onto my mother, who also worked at the same sewing factory as a fill in. Then came me. I really never cared to sew. Until I had my son.
From a young age, Liam loved all things super hero, and always wanted costumes. Being a mom who loves to craft, I wanted to make him these costumes. As luck would have it, my father in law found me a sewing machine, for FREE! And it just so happened to be the same one I woefully learned on in junior high home ec. However, something changed. I fell in love with sewing. Now I want to sew all the things! (And thanks to this book, I will!)
I’ve taken an old bed skirt and upcycled it into the cutest kitchen curtains. Old sheets are perfect for making capes! I once took a black one and made a bat cape. Then cut up an old yellow t-shirt to make the bat symbol. My son still has it, though it’s lost in his closet of no return.
