Getting To Know Ulla...

Over the past couple of weeks, I've been taking sewing classes with Ulla. During the three hour sessions, I've learned quite a bit about her capabilities! Against my better judgement, I am posting some of the wonky samplers we worked on.

Here's the first sampler. Yep, that's my very first button hole, along with a few simple decorative stitches on the side!

Next up, we have the ugliest deformed tee known to mankind. The purpose of this exercise was to practice making necklines and stitching on knit fabric.

Using a wing needle, we tried out a couple of decorative stitches.

For the next set of decorative stitches, we used a twin needle!

After the instructor was somewhat convinced that we had a basic understanding of our machines, we were allowed to work on our first project. When I saw a sample of what we were supposed to sew, I was dumbfounded. WTF?!? We had to work on pintucks (which was a PITA).

Here's a close-up of the pintucks!

There you have it. The completed project is supposed to be a baby bonnet. Yeah, right. I can't think of any baby I'd like to torture with that awful bonnet.

    Wow! Ulla means serious business! I applaud you and your efforts to get to know Ulla. Of course you would take a class, I am not at all surprised. My machine is 2 years old and I still have no clue how do make a button hole. Is it hard?
    Your bonnet isn't bad.... bonnets in general are bad IMHO.
    Good work friend!

    The classes came with the machine, so I thought I might as well take the time to sit through them! The button hole was easy peasy. Ulla did everything...all I did was step on the pedal!
