It is Sew!

Via Graphics Fairy

Remember a few months back when I made those Target tea towel pillows and my neighbor gave me loads and loads of fabric?  Well, I wished for a sewing machine.  Guess what I got for Christmas?!?  I’ll give you a big hint, it will come in useful for all this fabric:

My boys, my lovely boys, surprised me with a Janome sewing machine.  
It is very fancy (I think) and I don’t even know how to use all the functions.  It has 30 stitches!  An automatic needle threader and a very long manual.  It is very much fancier than the one I used at my internship at the North Shore Music Circus or in the Costume Department at Mount Holyoke.  I hadn’t used a sewing machine since university.
I took it out of the box the other day and  thought I should practice on some fabric I already had (just in case).  Here is the little pillow I made:
Not exactly perfect, but I think it looks sweet with my Duck Egg Blue chair.  I’m so excited to tackle more projects.  I know some of you are very talented with sewing so would be grateful for any tips, advice and sewing tutorials.  Please send them all my way!

    Oh wow!! I got a sewing machine for Christmas too!! It will be fun to see what you start making with yours! I have to admit I’m still a bit intimidated, although my first few projects have worked out _mostly_ OK!
