Some Serious Time Management..

I got this wonderful sewing machine from a mommy friend! I’ve been looking for a good working sewing machine for a while and just couldn’t pass this up. I’ve been super excited to use it for like months now…… :0)


I found these brand new Gap jeans for Jordan at once Upon a Child (a local children’s clothing store). Tags and everything still attached. They wanted $10 for them but I noticed that the seem was split so they knocked the price down to $5!! Woohoo!


I decided that these wonderful jeans would be my first sewing project as I have been trying to find something to sew on my new machine for far to long now.

The good news? The seem is fixed. Bravo.

The bad? It took me an hour and a half.

I mean pathetic. I spend all this time getting everything set up, 35 minutes reading all the directions to sew for a whopping 30 seconds. And I’m serious it literally took me 30 seconds to sew the jeans.

Buuut…I read to whole entire manual and for me that’s a serious accomplishment. Oh and I completed my first sewing project. ;o)
