Sewing in Progress ~

Here is what I have been up to...

My 5 year old twins birthday party is this weekend - it is a Superhero party! 

And as we all know, a superhero party is not complete without capes...of course, this is my very first time using a sewing machine. So what may be a simple project for all of you amazing seamstresses out there, this has been a slow moving one for me...and yes, I have had to hold back the tears...on a few occasions. 

Luckily, my dear friend, Jody, has been a HUGE help and I would have taken a hammer to the machine if if wasn't for her...thank you Jody (I will let you know when her Etsy shop is open - she has to open one, because she is "sew" amazing with a needle and thread)!

I am off to make more capes. 
(How to do like my "superhero" font? - it is all about getting in the mood right?)

I'm so excited for you...sewing is so much fun and rewarding. And the best thing about making stuff for the kids is no matter how much of a mess I make out of it, they think I did a great job! What a great theme for a boy/girl birthday party. Can't wait to see the pictures...

Chelsea, My five year old grandson is so into super heros! Everything revolves about them. He would love this party and especially the capes. From one non-sewer to another I understand the frustration completely.
Hugs,
Sherry
