My partner bought me a sewing machine for my birthday as I`m so bad at sewing ( I cant sew a button on without getting in a mess)
Well I opened the box and having never used a sewing machine in my life, I found the instructions were in Spanish. So I sat there for ages trying to thread a needle, then realised it had a bobbin?
I was not happy at all but I`m a very determined person and together with a translation site I decided to make a Zebra out of a pair of socks, I dont know why, sometimes I think I`m nuts but I perservered and the result is Marvyn (madagascar) Zebra.
I am kind of proud of him, but I do realise sewing is not for me, I have the tension all wrong and it kept snapping the cotton, and I havent a clue why but I enjoyed doing it I must admit
