Craft School: Sewing

There are a lot of crafts I would like to learn. Sewing is one of them. I had always been afraid of sewing and sewing machines. I'm not exactly sure why, but I guess it just seemed like something I would suck at, so I stayed away. Recently at work I began going into the Style Studio during my break to play around with the sewing machine and I loved it! The first thing I tried was making a pouch. Of course, I messed it up. But it wasn't terrible and the next day I tried another. That one actually turned out great! Shocking! So that weekend (last weekend) I went sewing machine shopping and ended up buying this Brother (need to name him still). 
I also got a bunch of fabric samples and zippers from Joann's and made myself a pin cushion.

 Now I'm on a pouch making rampage! Here's one:
Some of my coworkers joined me on our break last Friday and had me teach them how to make some. I'm so glad I took the plunge into sewing. And just in time for the new season of Project Runway!

UPDATE: I've decided on a name: Super Mario.
