Sewing Adventures

I’ve got a confession to make…. I got a sewing machine for Christmas and I only opened and used it today.

What!!! I know- its a tad embarrassing! But I really loved it when using it today- its a mini one from John Lewis and its really easy to use.

I made a dress for the munchkin from a top that I was going to get rid of- result!
Anyway- now I obviously need all the paraphernalia that goes with sewing!! 
Any recommendations for sewing kits??

    I’m just getting into sewing myself and have the same sewing machine (in pink) and it’s proving much easier to use than when I had to learn way back when at school! So far I’ve found extra spools easy to get hold of on eBay.

    I have used this machine, I liked its smoothness, but found it got very hot near the light, which bothered me. It couldnt cope with all I threw at it, but it perhaps just needs a better needle. Buying lots of bobbins would be my top tip!
