New Years Resolution: Achieved :P Answered

Perhaps I need to pick more difficult resolutions for future years... This year's was to learn how to use a sewing machine.... While I'm no expert and still have a lot to learn, it was surprisingly easy. That being said, sewing a long straight line is frustrating -- especially if your machine does crazy (yet full of school spirit) stitching :)

So, my first project -- feedback?

So, now I'm ready to sew a kite o.0 https://www.instructables.com/id/E6HD4QYZBCEP287MRO/
Not yet... I need more practice and need to do a bit more research on design :P But soon I'll be on my Doom Wheels!

Well, I know I'm a "man" but I do know how to work a sewing machine unparrellel to that of a woman. If you're having troubles sewing in a straight line, I'd say practive more! And that pattern you used there, if you're trying to sew two things together, use a regular pattern stitch as that won't provide any strenght at all. All though it appears you only used that for design
