First Sewing Project(s)!

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

I (we) did it!

After drooling over sewing projects for the last several months, and vowing to learn how myself, I completed two sewing projects. One of them with the help and guidance of the extremely talented Katie L, and one as my solo sewing debut.

First were the couch pillow covers. J and I purchased this new couch a few months ago, and it came with the below lovely throw pillows (GRODY):


Thanks to Urban Outfitters tapestries, I acquired a large amount of [cute] fabric very inexpensively, and... TA DA!




Thank you Katie, for showing me the ropes and helping me get this done in one evening.

I was so inspired by completing these pillow covers, that I went home to try my hand at a solo project.

I give you "The Travel Delicates Bag" ...




...complete with a drawstring ribbon!

Sky's the limit?
