Welcome from me too, Tim. It's wonderful that you're having a go at something new. I have 2 tips, which is to look at the youtube tutorials on whatever aspect you're interested in or having difficulty with. I think they are even better than real life sewing lessons because you can watch bits over and over till you get it. The other is that once you have mastered the easier things you could make simple things like shorts for your boys if you wanted. The tutorials often have links to free patterns. Anyway I think you'll enjoy sewing!

Mea Culpa - I've just noticed I didn't say hello to you @Tim Sr . Thought I'd done it -oops, in my defence your honour we're not very well chez Catllar at the moment. So I'd like to offer you a bottle of my finest artisan  :gin: gin and a :cake: large cake!
If life gives you lemons, add to gin and tonic !

Thank you @Catllar I have to be honest and admit to thinking I had responded earlier, dang memory failure here for sure. I thought we had bumped into each other in another thread, or it was me admiring your work while read through a lot of old threads. :) Thank you

Hi Tim, I just noticed, to my embarrassment, that I had told you you could make 'shorts for your boys', not realizing your boys are cats!  :meow: :meow:It evokes a funny visual image! I hadn't read thru everything when I gave you that tip! I think it'd be hard to get shorts on them :|

@pip Oh no, please don't be embarrassed! Not many people refer to their animals/pets as "The Boys" :meow: :meow: or the Lads :meow: :meow:. I have to apologize for not being clearer here. And I really do like the idea for shorts for the Boys!! I could just buy a pair each, yes they are available now at the pet stores. It is all the rave these days to costume or dress up your pet. Now everyone thought Sunshine was a girl and wouldn't believe he was a he, so maybe a small skirt for him?

Skirt would be easy to make!
