The first thing I made was a cover for my sewing machine in my two favorite colors!
Then I made a custom pillowcase for my daughter with fabrics she hand-picked!
Neither project turned out perfectly, but they're cute and functional, and not too bad for someone who has never sewn a stitch in her life before now (I think)! I might even be able to do a little bit of knitting before I have to go to bed tonight... If so, it will have been a very successful weekend, after all!
