    Not the most compliant model because she kept wanting to pull her clothes out of the drawers

    I reeeeeaaaallllly wish I had bought more of this fabric! Got it last year I think, on sale at Spotlight for a ridiculous price of $4 a metre. An absolute steal. Made the dress for DD that I posted, this top for my niece and there’s just enough left to maybe make a bucket hat (for me maybe?!)

    Four new fabrics that I bought yesterday. All Cloud 9 fabrics. Top left is for a dress for one of DD’s friends. The remainder I hope to make myself tops. Going to buy the P4P (Patterns for Pirates) Brunch Blouse and do a test on an op shop sheet first to see if the style suits me.
    I just love Cloud 9 fabrics!

    Anyone got a good pattern for a rah rah skirt (tiered skirt) for a 5 year old?

    Hi ladies,

    I’d love to be able to sew. I’m a total beginner though. I’m planning to teach myself from online videos.

    Can anyone recommend me a machine? Preferably one that’s not too expensive (incase I hate it).

    What other essentials do i need to get started?

    The machine I had when I was getting back into it was the Elna EL2000. It’s a good basic machine that has the main stitches you need as well as a buttonhole function. Not very expensive, either. Maybe even look for a second hand one (check Gumtree) as it’ll cost very little. If you decide you like it you could go and upgrade, then again if you hate it you haven’t spent too much money. A lot of the second hand ones are practically new due to people buying one then realising it’s not the hobby for them. Or they love it and are upgrading.
