My Sewing Machine & I "Make Friends"

John & the boys gave me a sewing machine for my birthday. I loved it but was a bit scared to get started since machines of all kinds hate me. (It's true!) But, I have summoned up my courage & so far, it's been OK. I even was able to make a simple bunny. Ta Da! :)

There are so many things I want to make - curtains, storage boxes, skirts, tote bags, aprons, pretty dish towels....anyone know any super great sewing blogs for beginners like me?

Google search "simple sewing tutorials" or something along those lines. I have done so many bags/purses from free on-line tutorials. Have fun! :)

ps. Cute Bunny!

Thanks Holly! I am so used to sewing by hand that it's a bit hard to start all over again as a beginner w/ a machine, but I am excited about the possibilities.
