Trials and thread

It's one of those things that I wished to have the knack for not only because there are so many women in our family who are so talented in doing this but creating something on my own gives me real pleasure.

Having Home Economics back in high school didn't really help. I remember asking my aunt for help on a particular project or I would hurdle to finish one on time. Eventually the grades would show how my skill or the lack of it needed a lot of improvement.

I guess my desire to learn to sew resurface when I became a mother. There was a need for me to cut cost on things for my daughters. I'm not talking about their wardrobe but small things like high chair or duvet cover. Anything that doesn't need fancy work. Only straight sewing!

There were so many projects that didn't see the day, others were so-so but I persevere, if that's the best word to describe my never-ending trials on sewing.

I know that it would take me a long time to be like Adin but I might get there, one throw pillow case at a time.

I am sure you will do good once you keep trying and sewing. Pillowcases are good thing to start with like those simple styles and then when you master that, challenge yourself to go up to a little bit more challenging ones. I learned sewing from watching my mom and now I wish I asked her to really teach me things, but I didn't. You can do it! :) Thanks again!

I will cook all day, but I will never sew. Ito ang hindi ko kayang gawin. My mom and my sister can make an outfit but I can't fix a button. I guess, kanya kanyang hilig lang di ba? have a great day..

I am so sewing-impaired. NO matter how I try I can not get the knack. Kudos for your perseverance!

Good luck!

I so love to sew too but I like somebody to tell me what to do hehehe. Like your family my family is very good in sewing too. I would love to sew my own pajama or bed sheet but seems like I get overwhelmed when I see instructions and then I started to say okey I can't do it, lol!! Adin is really good at it very talented ^_^

Sewing is not easy as its look. many years I learn how to sew but.. none of my project done with such a great sastify. Everytime I touch my sewing machine... sure another unfinished project will arise... :)

Learning how to sew (and first, buying a sewing machine) is included in my "to Do" list of 2011, ^^

Thanks for visiting my blog, btw, would you believe, that Miu Miu pair was sold for Php50.00 ($1.00) only? I searched online and found an ebay selling those for $300.00, ^^

Hello Yette. My aunts also in my mother side where very talented when it comes to sewing. When I first came here in the US and I don't have a job, I started learning how to sew. I was able to make a throw pillow and a blouse (which came out very depressing, lol). Anyway, I haven't touched my sewing machine for so long. Maybe one day. Just keep on trying Yette and you will be as good as those professional dressmakers.

Ate Mayet alam mo yung nanay ko sobrang galing tumahi, mananahi sya eh kso ni isa sa aming magkakapatid walang nakakuha ng talent nya at walang naging interesado sa pagtahi.. sayang noh? naalala ko sabi nya sakin dapat mag aral ako kasi daw malaking tulong para sakin kapag marunong ako manahi :D

I am not enough precise to do any kind of such works, Thanks God my sister does it for me, so I can ask for a dress or a beautifully done table cloth etc:)

That is one thing that I really wanted to learn. I was sewing before and even able to make cushion covers (only) but since I don't have anymore the sewing machine, i stopped.
