This year for my birthday/Christmas present, I got a sewing machine. It's the Brother Project Runway Limited Edition computerized sewing machine and it looks like this:
I never used to sew much by machine. I took a summer school sewing class once but I never had a nice sewing machine. I inherited my grandma's machine but it was old and didn't sew so well anymore.
I did a bit of research before deciding on a machine. I was looking at the Singer Simple which was cheaper but this one had more features and it came with a bunch of accessories
I used it a bit tonight to do some sewing on my first project which was a pair of pajama pants for my husband. I got black flannel for it and cut out the pattern pinned it and started sewing. I love this machine already. It has a needle threader and the bobbin is extremely easy to put in, no complicated bobbin casing to deal with.
Realized that the pants I made were much too big. My husband wanted me to start over but looking at the pattern, I realized I only had to take it in on the size by about 2 inches on each size and I was able to salvage it. Just have to do the elastic casing and the hem for the bottom. So far, so good.
