So, my project has been. . .interesting. In the off sense of the word.
First, it had been a while since I used my sewing machine (moving and working a lot will do that) and so I had to reacquaint myself with it.
Second, I am very bad at sewing straight lines. Or, I should say, they are straight (they don't curve or anything like that), but they are more diagonal. So a 1/4" hem goes from 1/4" to 1/8".
Third, in my last sewing class, I showed a talent for breaking needles. I still don't know how I got that particular superpower.
Also? My thread got stuck in the bobbin housing and I couldn't get it out. My sewing teacher was able to.
