My gran very kindly gave me her sewing machine. Which looks like it's from the sixties but works perfectly fine.
I have been buying small packs of material from Hobbycraft for £13 to practise on, as I haven't used a sewing machine since I was at school, which was nearly 10 years ago!!
It has definitely been a learning experience. Lol I didn't know nearly as much about it as I thought I did. But I have been watching videos and reading books. So I think I will make this into a series. Update you all every time I do a bit more of it :)
