I Am Learning to Sew!

I finally did it! I bought a sewing machine since I had this sudden urge to learn how to sew recently and I practiced with a few things! The first project is a pillow. I used some leftover fabric that a friend had to play around with. I didn't know what to expect, but here is how it came out. I have a lot of learning to do. I want to make my daugthers Dora the Explorer pillow for her bedroom eventually after I master this. I am currently working on a black and white one before bedtime tonight with some ribbon attached just for fun.

Here is a burp cloth with a special touch, great for gifts. You can buy a 12 pack of plain white Gerber burp cloths at Wal-Mart and sew a pretty piece of ribbon across to make them extra special!

I am so glad I got over my fear of the sewing machine. I am hooked! I will keep you updated on projects I will be working on in the future!


  1. Great job! I sooo want to learn to sew...I just need to finally do it. So good for you! :)

  2. I am glad that you are learning-I really enjoy creating and sewing-after getting into it I now have a friend that aquires my service and I do all her mending and altering:)

    So glad that you enjoyed making something:) Congrats!!!
