Amanda is officially my "cheap dates buddy." We are always finding new things to do that cost close to nothing. We both like to save our money.
Where: Amanda's house
Cost: $0 (Unless you need to buy fabric and clothing)
Outcome: Fun and relaxing
Amanda and I both had clothes we needed to alter. This would have been really productive but something went wrong with the bobbin and the stitches kept coming loose.
Amanda's cat, Mr. Finn, was very interested in what we were doing. He had his eye on that thread for awhile before jumping up on the table and knocking one down to play with.
While you are altering your clothing, a movie makes some good background sound. Amanda picked these two out, but we ended up watching The Labyrinth. Oh, and make sure you have snacks!
We realized that we did not have any pins, so we ran to Meijer and Amanda bought these cute shape ones.
Our sewing party is Finn approved!
