my first pillow.
April 13, 2009
so, i'm embarrassed to say i bought my first sewing machine exactly a year ago in an attempt to fall in love with a new hobby and still haven't made anything pretty to look at...until now. at stacy's (my craft coach) nudging, i finally finished my first pillow. i used stacy's awesome tips (start from the middle of a side instead of a corner, turn corners with pressure foot down and use pillow stuffing instead of a pillow form) and voila! at first, i was a bit disappointed by the obviousness of the hand stitching on a little part of one side, but now i think i'm over it. it's my first one, so hopefully i'll get a bit better as i go. and hopefully i have more motivation to continue on with other sewing projects. martha, watch out! ok, just kidding.
