First Sewing Project

I took a sewing 101 class at JoAnn last week and am still amazed at how much I learned in 2.5 hours.

Sewing has always intimidated me because I remember my mom's old sewing machine that seemed impossible to master; the sewing machines now are so easy and user friendly.

I can't wait to make things like table runners, pillows, tablecloths, and hopefully some summer skirts and dresses.

My instructor has her pillow cover instructions posted here.

I'm impressed it came out as good as it did for my first try!
