when patterns go on sale, do we really need them or just to add to our collection lol! I haven't bought sewing  patterns in forever! for the past 25 years I’ve done around 6 or more craft shows a year, on the machine there’s a button hole feature just turn 4 times & wa laa  a button hole, so the book says lol! I haven’t sewn a zipper in anything in over 30 years, doll dress’s doesn’t require zippers lol!





Vita & Natalea’s  “sew your own wardrobe challenge” in  a year has lured me outta my comfort box to try big girl sewing once again lol! the challenge begins in just a few short weeks & I’m hanging on to the sides of my box as tight as I can lol! come on over join in on the fun at

Hi Nanna, just joined your site, perhaps you can join mine so we can all join in with this sewing challenge. I'm returning to sewing too, so I'm just as rusty - I'm sure we are not the only ones. Sarah
