If by real sewing you mean sewing 280 seams about five inches long. I'm making a quilt! I've been saving old jeans for quite a while, and cutting squares out of them, as well as salvaging the zippers for new pairs of pants.
Over the course of the past three days, I took all these squares:
Rather than laying them all out on the floor and arranging them, I decided to toss them all in a box, mix them up, and pick them out randomly to sew them together. See?
I then just started sewing. Yes, it did get quite boring. Luckily the seams are short and the fabric is denim, which is a fabric I really like. I need to get myself some new headphones, though, so I can listen to music while I sew. As of about an hour ago, all these random squares had been turned into this:
Yes, it still does look like a heap of squares, but trust me, it's actually turned into a bunch of long strips. Next up, deciding which order to sew these strips together in!
Am I doing this right?
