I finally got to use my new sewing machine today. I have several projects that I need to get done, so I decided to make a hat for the twins (one done, one to go) in order to acquaint myself with the machine. It turned out okay. I altered the pattern a little (no big surprise there) and I think it will be a bit before it fits, but I feel quite accomplished at having made it. I can't wait to sew some more.
