If you have the proper space and tools, it's not any harder than anything else. And I think you would just get used to handling large amounts of fabric. It is heavy & not the easiest to just sew a straight line.
As it turns out the fabric has a really lovely drape and I am happy with the outcome. I will be REALLY happy when cold winter rolls around and I have these heavy insulated draperies.
OK, so what's up with the sewing machine there, you say? Well, if a nice barely used Kenmore shows up on craigslist, just a few miles from me (for a great price) what am I supposed to do- just leave it there? LOL. I just had to get it and indulge my curiosity. It is a wonderful machine and perfect for Home Dec sewing. Instead of a pedal, it operates with a lever. I am not too suew how I like that, if I keep it, I will look into swapping that to a pedal. That seems easy, eh?
And I thoroughly enjoy my new sewing caddy. It houses all of my thread in a way that allows me to see the color easily. I can carry it to a window or a lamp to see how the color looks in different lights. Nice.
Next up, alterations for DD and a pair of jeans I promised almost a WHOLE year ago.
That's OK, by the time I get back to sewing for myself, I am REALLY going to enjoy it!
