I officially love my little sewing machine. And officially feel like I am learning how to use it! I completed my first project today, and am actually pleased with the outcome:
(pillow on the right was purchased at TJ Maxx; I recently saw the exact same fabric it was made from for more per yard than I paid for one pillow!)
I haven't quite figured out how I am going to arrange them... But I will definitely be making a few more for the love seat.
LIke I said, for my first real sewing project, I am really pleased. And I really enjoyed the process. Each pillow took about 35-45 minutes, including cutting out the pattern. Not too bad! I found a tutorial here.
After a morning of sewing the hubs and I took Paisley pup to the dog park and then explored the farmer's market. Since it was almost 4:00 on Sunday afternoon, most vendors were closed. We are planning to go back next Saturday to do a little produce shopping.
We ended the evening with a late lunch/early dinner at a new neighborhood restaurant,
Edley's Bar-B-Que. So delicious! We ended our meal with a Bushwacker.... Yum!
After dinner I decided to complete one last weekend project, a ribbon headband.... So easy!
Enjoy the last few hours of the weekend!
