Sewing Machine

The BIG gift that I got from my parents this year Christmas was a Singer Ingenuity Sewing Machine. It's ridiculous. It's fully electronic and probably one of the easiest machines I've ever used (and I'm not just talking about sewing machines). I love it! You just push some buttons and the sewing machine automatically changes to the settings it needs. It's amazing. And I've already finished two projects! I was finally brave enough to take it out of the box on Friday and I read the whole manual (which I don't think I've ever done). On Friday I made a door-blocker-thingy to go in front of our front door so that it doesn't leak the cold and heat. And then on Saturday I made Charissa a dress! While there are LOTS of mistakes, I think it looks pretty good. Here's a few pictures:

In this picture Charissa is proving her true modeling capabilities. It's the "something-interesting-is-going-on-far-off-behind-the-camera" pose.

This is just a bonus picture because she's making her new strange face. She breaths rapidly through her nose and scrunches up her face. It's really funny.
I don't think I'll be making a lot of clothes for Charissa, but at least I know I can. If anyone has need for a sewing machine, you know my number!

What a cute dress! My mom used to make clothes for my sisters and me. The best part was spending time at the fabric store, looking at the pattern books, and picking out which one we wanted.
