Camila vs The Sewing Machine
I’m sure you all remember me stating that I wanted to learn how to sew this summer. I wanted to blog about it so that I would really be forced to do it. So here I am updating you on what’s going on.
Last week was a little crazy around here, but I did end up finding the sewing machine so that’s an accomplishment. Yay for week 1. Baby steps right?
This is the beginning of week 2 and I need to get to business. This morning before Jon left for work I had check the machine and make sure it was threaded correctly. Yes, Jon knows more about sewing then me!
Your question now must be,“Camila what do you plan on making with that fab multi-colored striped fabric?”
Well thanks for asking. Here is my very long answer. I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll mention it again. I have no shame in grabbing something from my neighbors curb on garbage night. In fact on Sundays me and Jon drive around and see if there is anything good for the taking.
This Saturday we found this:
Ok so it looks a bit worn, but a client of mine wanted to find one to use in her living room and is on tight budget. So I’m going to try and make some magic and see what I can do with it. Don’t worry I’ll keep you posted.
Alright back to the sewing. So a couple of weekends ago my In-laws neighbors were throwing out their old patio set. So before it hit the curb we got a sneak peak and grabbed it. It wasn’t in horrible condition just dirty so it went home with us.
Here is the table all cleaned up. It was missing an umbrella so over the weekend we went out and picked one up. Now with the umbrella base it’s looking like a tulip table to me. Ah a girl can dream right?
Here is the mesh fabric that was on the chairs that I didn’t love. I’m going to clean them up and then use them as a base to attach my new fab mulit-colored fabric!
So this will be my first project. I’m hoping all goes well. I need to got out and pick up the power-washer to clean them up before I get to work, but fingers crossed I have at least one done by tonight!
