After you have all your supplies ready get your fabric and start cutting. Cut, cut, cut, cut!
Next you will want to drag out your brand new sewing machine. Or an old monster works too. I've had my Singer Simple for about 6 years. She's been a good one even if she is about to kick the bucket. I think I paid around $80 for her. $80 for 6 years of abuse ain't (yes I know ain't isn't a word) bad.
Be sure to let me know how it goes for you.
