I have been wanting to learn how to sew for a long time, and a lack of a work permit has given me the freedom. I have my very own sewing machine and am in a class where I am learning with moderate success to sew a skirt.

I decided I wanted to make stockings to commemorate our first Christmas as married people.. I succeeded and I am very proud.

Experienced seamstresses (or the male version thereof) might be able to see areas where improvement is needed. I sure do. But this is my first sewing project success, and I am going to bask in the glory of it until tomorrow.

Basking sounds gezelig, zonder drop.

Awesome, what a great idea for a starter project. You could try a Christmas table cloth or table runner too. Sewing is fun, if you don't stress out about it too much and get mad at yourself when you mess up. I'm excited to see your skirt, make sure you post it. :)

Very nice! I'm no seamstress but I've heard that rounded edges (i.e. such as those found in boot/sock shaped designs) are quite difficult to accomplish well. Looks like you've already got the hang of it!
