I've been wanting to do this for a long time... With all the talented folks here who sew different articles I finally broke down and got a sewing machine. For the longest time I've had so many different projects I wanted to put together which you just can't buy in stores. But then there was the whole stigma of the "man sewing" thing which probably played a part in my 54 year delay. In any case, I'm now in business. After learning how to use the sewing machine (self taught) and practicing some stitches on some scrap cloth I decided to sit down and make a fairly simple project, a handkerchief. Here are the results of my first attempt. Let me know what you think. I've been sewing now for just about one half of one day.
