My latest project

After struggling with my new sewing machine, I took it back and ordered a different, better rated one and I LOVE IT.  It is a Brother cs6000i.  It is quiet, smooth and works like a charm.  And the bobbin hasn't even gotten locked once.  Perfect for a beginner.

I have hemmed Kyle's and Taylor's pants, fixed Grants sweatshirt, sewn an apron...

and my latest project....

Clothes for McKay's American Girl dolls.  And, since I have been buying clearance fabric, they cost me about 2.00 an outfit.  Sweet, huh?  This week Hancock's has a brand of patterns on sale for 1.99 so I bought a few more doll ones, and of course, an apron one.  DBJ....don't be jealous.  Although I will say the pattern wasn't written well and I had to make a few adjustments.
