The first thing we made together on that machine was a one-piece set of footed pajamas for my own Cabbage Patch Kid, Tracy. Looking back, it was a pretty complicated project for a first-timer. I was so incredibly proud of myself when we finished it. It's been 22 years since that first project and I still love to sew. Thanks, Mom!

My mom taught me how to sew when I was just 8 years old. I had always watched her sew my clothes and Halloween costumes on her Singer, which was stored inside a lovely cherry desk in our living room. She must have been pretty tickled with idea of teaching me how to sew, because when it came time to teach me she bought me a Cabbage Patch Kids sewing machine. Like most girls my age growing up in the '80s, I adored Cabbage Patch Kids, so having a Cabbage Patch Kids sewing machine was a dream come true!
