Baby steps...

This weekend, I decided to get busy and finish the pillow I started over two weeks ago.  Two weeks!  This marks my first   second sewing venture! 


That first attempt, I got as far as cutting out the pieces, and then I decided it was too hard, so I bought fabric and Tanner stapled it to a piece of plywood and thus became our window seat cushion.........


Hey now, are you laughing at me?  Ok, I laughed at me too.  But..... we're all different  (haha)


Since my mom bought me a sewing machine for Christmas, however, I decided I should probably sew this one instead of breaking out the hot glue gun.


Oh how I wanted to break out the hot glue gun...


Anyway.


So this first pillow is my Valentines Day pillow.  I am selling it.  I needed at least one thing to sell so I could finally open up that Etsy shop I've been talking about.  So anyway, I know I'm rambling, but without further ado, the pillow, the store, and the completion of my "little resolution that could."

This is gorgeous. What a brilliant first attempt at sewing. I do a lot of hand sewing but my first attempt was nowhere near as good as this! It was terrible actually! Well done and Good Luck with the Etsy shop x

That is so cool, you made that!!! I've been wanting to sew for a while, like really make something with my two hands. I'll have to keep checking in and see what else you create!
