Absolutely no skills here! At work last year the hem of my pants fell and I stapled it!!

I would love to be able to sew and make awesome things, but every time I've tried to learn has been disastrous. My friend's mother tried to teach me one summer, telling me that, "I can teach anyone to sew." At the end of the summer she had changed that to, "I can teach anyone to sew...except for you."

My mom recently told me that I don't have to learn how to sew because she doesn't want me to live far away from her and she will be able to mend everything I need for the rest of my life! LOL!

That was the one thing good that came out of FIDM, I can my sewing machine. I even have a three level tackle like box filled with sewing crap. I don't like it only because I do not have the patience to sew for very long, but I am about to tackle on a huge project...a mermaid costume for halloween! Yikes!!

it really is easy. start out with simple projects like recycling clothes, so then you're not makign something completely from scratch. just resize a t-shirt! all you need to do is sew a seam!

WOW - I'm impressed at so many of you having creative skills with sewing. I have mostly had a machine and I use it sometimes. Not so much now because I'm a knitter now.

I can sew, but I choose not to.

I sew all my skating costumes, and have been venturing into "normal" clothing and have made a couple tops so far. But usually I use my sewing skills to alter clothing so they fit perfectly :)

I have a sewing machine (ok - it's actually my sister's that I borrowed for a project and never gave back). I have delusions of grandeur when it comes to my skills. I'm OK - I know how to work a machine (everything is too long on me so I'm a hemming maniac); and I have made my own patterns for a few things - but really what I need is practice and a class or two.

When it comes to sewing big things I kind of suck, but I can hold my own with a needle, thread, and a button.

i can barely sew on a button or sew up a seam. i used to be able to make pillows and drawstring bags on a sewing machine at school but my mom wouldn't buy me a real sewing machine b/c she thought all i'd make were pillows and drawstring bags. lol

I can sew if I really need to, but the needles I can really wield are knitting needles.

I have two machines two!! One my Grandma passed down to me, it's pretty small and portable. And my Mom gave me her old Singer that's built into a side table (it folds down into the table, so it is completely hidden most of the time). I also do embroidery and cross-stitching.
