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!
