Recently I called a friend who sews over to ask her for a little help. I had recently purchased a very inexpensive ( and with a coupon too!) Sew E Z mini sewing machine from Jo-Ann Fabrics. I had decided to try my hand at pillow making and I couldn’t get the bobbin to work.
And when she saw my mini sewing machine she laughed….
Big…loud…robust…guffaws. But I haven’t made a thing since my eighth grade home ec apron and I couldn’t see investing in a sewing machine until I had tested the waters. But, I am a determined soul…sometimes for better; sometimes for worse…and I needed pillows.
You may remember that I posted here about having chairs in the family room reupholstered. I had looked around for complementary pillows for the sofa. But that seemed a waste when I had fabric left.
So I persevered in spite of my friend’s lukewarm encouragement. I think I can….I think I can :)
First, I tried my hand at a small pillow. Okay….
Then a larger one.
Slipcovers here I come! :)
I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday. Visit her here…you are sure to be inspired!
Thanks for stopping by to see my little makeover! I am so glad you came. Don’t forget to say hello!~~Susan
