I Learned How to Sew!

I know it takes more than just one day of practice, but I have begun learning to sew with the help of my Other Mother and the generous bridal shower gift from her sisters to me (a nice sewing machine!).

 My first project is complete and, I must say, gorgeous!  PILLOWS!!!!!!!!!!

Staple gun project to come later....but it was in use....

I fell in love with the fabric we found at JoAnn Fabrics and think I might be making even more pillows.

(The blankets are covers to protect the furniture from Marzipan kitty)
 I love that the orange in the fabric picks up the living room walls but also pulls in some of the blues we have scattered around the room (not pictured.)  Perfectly accented by the blue fabric...mmmm delishiousness for my eyes!

Would you like some close ups?

Getting closer....

So beautiful....

My Other Mother made the round pillow because I was not ready to move on from sewing a straight line yet.

The other two...

I just can't stop staring.  I should probably warn Greer that these fabrics are about to show up allllll over the living room.  Mmmmmm.....

What do you sew?


  1. They look great, Lolls! Really nice choice on the fabric. Can't wait to see what else you sew up!

  2. Awesome! So jealous you can sew!
