(I just realized this should probably have been posted in the sewing forum. Sorry!
I just received my own sewing machine for Christmas and I'm absolutely thrilled. However, I don't really know where to go from here! I've made a few shabby projects but I honestly just don't have a clue.
I'd like to make toys, dolls, and clothes for my little one, and be able to sew patches and whatnot when I need to.
Here's a list of the supplies I have:
-Plenty of fabric from my mom's stash
-Some spools of thread that turned out to be cheap and only like 5 yards long
-Some patterns that are Greek to me
-Pins and needles of a few different sizes
-Plastic bobbins (I've read that metal is better?)
-Lots of ribbon
Help me get started! What else do I need?
