OMG!!! How did I miss THAT vest. Soft, it's gorgeous. It is almost exactly what I was envisioning when you and I talked about it before. What did we say, "Tess meets Dries for tea in the garden". It's perfect. Great work! We are going to have some awesome craft nites next year!!!
I think it's funny that you have the patience to hand sew, but not to use the machine. I'm exactly opposite. I even sew buttons on with my machine.

Cowboyboots-have fun with your new machine!

Pointup-check out your local fabric shops to see if they offer any sewing classes. You could even take a class through a community college as continuing education. Most machines come with video tutorials these days. Once you understand how to use the machine you can use the "very easy" patterns to learn basic construction and eventually you'll become more comfortable.

i can hand sew to save my life im so bad at it and it always turns out messy. i love sewing machines makes it so much easier. i dont mind changing the thread and bobbin i could probely do it with my eyes closed if i tried!:p

the sewing machine i have is a computerised one so its easier, bit of a cheat really! but it has alot of beautiful stitches on it. can wait until my b/day although my mam let me have a bit of ago on it before she hid it. and i'l be gettin a digital camera so i'l probs end up posting loads pictures instead of trying to describe the things i'v made!

I have a new sewing machine i got it for christmas!! I have been sewing since i was 12 I started because I had all these amazing ideas for clothes in my head but i could never see anything which lived up to it in shops so i desided to make it. Im quite a artsey crafty person anyways so i like that type of thing.
