First serious sewing

I bought a sewing machine 6 years ago. I've used it twice for sewing lining to crocheted bags. Very simple thing, just 3 straight seams.
If to consider that, I'm not very good at sewing. I'm terrible at sewing! Or maybe I'm not, I just haven't tried :)

Now I'm going to do something that will boost up my skills. Hopefully :)
I bought a baby booties pattern from sewingwithme7 and I'm actually going to make them!
She stated that it's suitable for beginners and the pattern is great, with photos and everything, but I'm still a bit sceptical.
I would like to try it now, but I have no fabric in home.

Good luck on your project. No fabric in home, I think my boyfriend would be thrilled if I said that, LOL! Cupboards are stuffed. I could actually send you some, what are you looking for?

Great idea to learn something new! Good luck!!!

Babo, you're so sweet! I don't have fabric, but I have tons of yarn.
I need some heavy weight home decorator or quilting weight cotton and for lining some quilting wight cotton.
I have no idea what it means :)

No fabrics in the house...hihihih

Once you get the hang of sewing you will enjoy it hugely!

How much do you need, Ann? And which colours do you fancy? I'll see if I can find some.

Babo, I bought some fabric today, with red and white.
But if you have leftovers (booties are really tiny and don't need much for one pair) that you don't need, I don't mind trading if you wish, I can make something knitted or crocheted for return :)
