I'm sew jealous!


If a button falls off of my clothes, I'm going to need a safety pin. Whereas my husband whips out the antique Singer sewing machine and sets up making a wind scoop for the sail boat on a Monday night. I'm feeling a little defeminized (is that the opposite of emasculated?) right about now. He sure is a cutie though, huh?


A little trivia he told me tonight, and I'll ask you... Rip-stop nylon was created as a substitute for what other material? And for what specific use?

I made learning to sew one of my New Year's Resolutions, and I'm even more resolved now. Any suggestions where to start?

I'm trying to learn how to sew but it's not going that well. Love the picture. Let him do it :-)

The first thing I learned to sew was a pair of pajama pants. You first need to learn about how to lay out a pattern, and then you just follow the directions!

Come on over, I'll show you what to do!

You are one lucky woman! The first thing I learned to sew was an apron. Though not the best sewer, I do love making things from time to time. You should go for it!

I learned to sew when I was in the seminary. Like fishing, patience is the key!

Haha love it!

And knowing you guys, I'm going to guess rip-stop nylon was made for sails...
