Crafting 101

I realized I like self taught stuff. When I was pregnant with my baby. I ordered the self taught hypno-babies program. I didn't think I'd commit, but to my surprise I did, it worked and I had my lovely drug free, pain free baby. (Btw highly recommended to any mommy to be reading this blog).
My second try at the self taught stuff is an embroidery kit that I ordered from here. I sent My husband to the children's museum with our tiny little one, so I could decipher this great mystery.
Turns out, it doesn't need deciphering!
Embroidering as it turns out is one of the simplest crafting hobbies one can ever embark on.
If you know how to use a needle and a thread, you'll know how to master this elegant skill.
So here's a picture of my first project.

I also bought one of those little girls or boys (what they're allowed!) sewing machines to try my luck. Will let you guys know how it turns out.
Who knows maybe one of these days I'll be able to dress pumpkin in stylish hand made dresses decorated with some fancy embroidery. InshaAllah:)
