This year I am adamant on learning how to properly sew clothing. Let's see how it goes but a word of advice:
Don't be a cheapskate like me and try to learn sewing using a handheld sewing machine. Or if you're absolutely sure it will work for you, invest on at least a branded handheld one. Thank goodness it's just Php150 (around USD4), bought from Divisoria!
Here's my first learning project. A scrunchy. :P
Do I need to write a tutorial for this? Probably not as I just made it along as I go. I cut a 12"x 3" piece of cloth lying around the house. I also used a 4" garter. Then I just sew the edges together. Finished!
