The only thing we have to fear is fear itself

Yesterday I posted about my innate ability to procrastinate about everything, even my kids costumes. There was a lot of franticness, fur flying and swearing as I tried the non-sewing method of getting fabric to fuse (BTW, Stitch Witchery does not fuse felt on to faux fur).

At 1:00 I finally gave up and hoisted the sewing machine out of the closet. Thirty minutes later, I had the dang thing threaded and was ready to go.

I can officially say I can sew a semi-straight line, thread a sewing machine needle and could possibly make something using straight stitches (pillows or curtains, maybe?).

The sad part of all of this is that the faux fur leg warmers I made were not used. The costumes look good without them.

Sewing machine? Fear conquered.
