first sewing project

Last summer I learned to knit, this summer I have taken up sewing, thanks to Mama Millie's old sewing machine, and my mom's tutoring when she and my dad visited in June.

I just finished my first project, accent pillows for our bed. I learned how to make and stuff the pillows, and how to sew a fold-over type of cover (not sure what it's really called!) and a cover with a zipper.

I am only sewing in straight lines for the moment, and nothing fancy with cording or buttons!

Next project: a valance for the kitchen window... I've ordered the material and it should be delivered in early September.
