I learned to sew with my mom. In the summers when I was about 10 we
would make drawstring or elastic shorts out of all sorts of crazy
fabrics. I don't think I was very patient back then, but I love to sew
now. And I know that it was because my mom had the patients when I was
younger to teach me an invaluable skill. Thanks mom!!

Sew Serendipity is "sew" up my alley! When I was in my first year of
sewing in High School, I decided not to use a pattern to make a skirt.
(My first ever sewing project to boot.) The teacher didn't chide me or
anything, she asked me how I was going to make my hips fit into that.
And I've been thinking how to make things work ever since, without a
pattern. Though I definately use patterns equally as often as I
'freestyle' it, I joy in the creativity of Just Doing It!

The first project I remember making was a pillow I sewed while I was
visiting my Grandmother one summer. I think I was six or seven.
Thanks for the chance to win--I would love to make that adorable skirt
on the cover!

One of my first sewing memories is of sewing an apron by hand in
Brownies ... and sewing it to my skirt! My mother and grandmother both
sewed, and I loved rummaging through the scraps of fabric and trim and
assembling them into bags or little animals.

I was around 8 when i got my first sewing machine. It was a little
brother you hand cranked...wished I still had it now. I made doll
clothes for my barbie doll.
