My First Sewing Project

As a wife I completed my first sewing project! I have sewed before, but I always had my mom there to help me so I was very proud of myself when I got out my sewing machine and did everything on my own. A few months ago, Jesse and I opened our new sheets for our bedding and as I was putting on one of the pillow cases I notice a rip down the seam. I was so bummed because they were brand new, but I could not return them because I had just washed them. I finally got around to fixing it. It was not the best stitching I have ever done, but it fixed the problem and now it is as good as new.

This is my craft center in our apartment. I have several different unfinished projects going on at once, but at least now I can cross off the pillow case. I am also working on an engagement photo album, I need to stitch a bead back on my bathing suit and I have a few buttons on coats that need to be sewed back on before the weather gets too cold. We will see how much actually gets done.
A special thanks goes out to my mom for teaching me how to sew over the years...I am glad it stuck with me.


  1. I love your sewing supply case! I need to invest in one of those. My needles and thread are thrown haphazardly in a rubbermaid container.

  2. You go girl! I am like you and tend to have several projects going at once!

  3. Bravo! I like to think that mending is a whole different craft than sewing, so I can still say I love to sew. Mend? Not so much - there is a special pile that stays hidden out of sight and out of mind until it is absolutely needed. Just let me know when you are ready to sew another quilt and we can Skype it step by step together!
