The Double Needle

Have you ever sewn with a double needle? I haven't. But here's good news for people like us.

Over at Make It and Love It you can read about some basic stitches and how to use a double needle. I figured it couldn't be too hard, but I also didn't want to risk messing up my machine. Turns out it's a simple as can be. I can't wait to try a double needle now. I'll be looking for an excuse to use one!

Here's the link to her post.

Since I have no real official education when it comes to sewing, there is a lot I don't know. I never took a Home Economics class in school or anything. What I do know I learned from my mother, who was kind of tired of sewing by the time I was ready to learn. Not to mention she was juggling 6 kids. So when I find a nice little post like this, I find it helpful. Thanks for sharing, Ashley! Pin It

I must go purchase a double needle! With all the sewing I do I never even knew there was such a thing... I feel like a failure for not knowing that. Thank you for the post. Your blog is so cute, and I LOVE the header!

Oh my gosh, I am obsessed with your blog as of an hour ago. I work at a university, and during the summer have a ton of downtime and have been trying to find SOMETHING to do so that I'm not just a deskchair for the whole summer. Luckily, I stumbled on to this, and now I have lots of projects to start on and bring in!

My husband and I recently bought a house built in 1900-1910 in Guthrie, OK, so we're trying to update it without losing the historic charm. Thank you for all your tips! I'm going to try out making a yarn wreath this afternoon. :)

Dang it. I just updated my blog for the first time in months, and realized my layout is pretty much the same one you used... I may need to tweak it, lol.
