Sewing is hard

Well I finally sewed something today! After several attempts at trying to get to know my new sewing machine abit better (with plenty of rejection!!!) I have made....drumroll please.......a cushion. Yes, I know its just 2 pieces of square shaped fabric held together by 4 lines of sewing, but I am so happy with myself that I have finally sewed something!!! Just goes to show even someone as unco-ordinated as me can learn how to do something! So, enough about praising myself for something so simple to so many of you loverly crafty ladies. Here is my cushion- the photo is crap but its pink & white stripes and is being modelled by my less-then-impressed Yoda who I woke up just to model for me!

Okay, back to sleep now my baby boy. At least you got a comfy cushion for today's work!


  1. That is so awesome. We all have to start somewhere, and that is a good place to start, with a pillow. I am very proud of you. Now you can make a simple skirt. You can try the one on my blog I recently did or pickup a pattern for a simple elastic waistband skirt. I love making skirts.

    I also wanted to welcome you as one of my newest followers. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.


  2. thanks Trudy! I have my sights set on sewing some new curtains next for my kitchen as the current ones are just horrible, then I think I will attempt a skirt! Thanks for checking out my blog too!
