Augh now I'm remembering why I was going to buy a sewing machineeee. I wanted to make cool things to wear like the AG hoodie and BW jacket and fun skirts and stylin' jackets and all sorts of ridiculous things that I have no idea how to make.

ahahahahaha max and his dark green speedo ahahaha

I can sew by hand. Although I do a really crappy job. I usually do it just to make small repairs on things, like rips, tears, or applying patches.

Yeah I can do a few things involving sewing- I can repair small tears by hand and do like... pillowcases and circle skirts on a machine. But I really haven't learned how to properly operate a machine- thread a bobbin, take care of the thing, switch stitches, etc. Luckily I have a grandma that can teach me when I decide I should be taught. :3

That's pretty fabulous even just that. I don't have even that much because I'm not over that first hurdle that tells me I wouldn't even know where to start.

My mom taught me when I first started Scouts because I had to sew on all the badges I got. And it didn't really take long, but I haven't done it in a while. I could probably pick it up again real quickly though.

I'm not to good at sewing. The only thing I've sewn well was a button on a hat I liked. Buttons are easy. Whenever I try to fix a whole in these pajama pants I like, it busts open easily.

Aw yeah buttons! Buttons and beads~ I used to use them to decorate hemlines on various things because it was cute. Actually one fell off of my denim skirt a while ago... still need to replace that...

Dayum, it's been FOREVER since I've done something that involved a needle. I only sew by hand and not by machine, although my mom has been trying to teach me how to sew by machine for quite a while now but I just didn't have the interest to do so. I'm old fashioned. lol

I need to get a new zipper for my sweater and get it put on. The old one broke in the dryer and didn't zip together properly :c

One of my shorts lost a button a few days ago and this thread is reminding I should sew it back on. I really like those shorts.

Edit: Hahah thread. Puns could be intended.

Ugh that sucks. Happened to me before; the situation was not cute. Spent like 20 minutes before I realized that broken zippers=the end of all puny efforts to zip them back up.

And sewing. Ha. HA. HAahAHaaHAHaAHA. That's for silly people who can't sew but think they can and then you make awful sweaters and then your relatives are like "this is great" and they can't put it over their head because it's like there are only three armholes instead of two and a head hole and they're uncomfortable and this is a run-on congratulations to those who stuck by it and didn't say "tl;dr".
tl;dr: I can't sew for crap. And totes jk btw kthxbai~

Haha I make things for me and only me. One, because I cbf'd to take other people's measurements. Two, because I estimate far too much and end up doing a lot of tweaking and wouldn't want others to deal with that. Three, because I'm not going to be spending money and time on anything more strenuous than crocheting a hat for someone else.

....which reminds me I have half a hat in my backpack still. Well, half a hat and a lot of tangled yarn. Oops.

I started a neigborhood biking club a few months ago, and (right now) I sew on all of the ranks, as well as the battalion insignia (red rectangle with gold lightning bolts) and the commander insignia (BDU green eagle). None of you understand military lingo -___-

Other than that, I make clothes for my plushies (lots of fun), for when I play with them with my sister on the weekends.

I can't sew or knit or do anything like that, haha. It would be a handy tool though.

I did want to learn knitting though, since my uncle learned it while he was unemployed. I could probably make better clothes, then - as well as hats and whatnot.

You know, Pedro... I could've gone my whole life without seeing that.

I can't sow, unfortunately.
Though I do intend to learn.
