For a long time now, I've been wanting to learn how to sew.
I love crafty projects, but always avoided ones that involved having to sew, since I didn't know how to.
I've been wanting to make throw pillows for our couch for quite some time though,
and just kept putting it off and hoping that I would find cheap throw pillows that I really liked at Target or some other store.
Well over the course of a few months, I came to realize that there is no such thing as a cheap and cute throw pillow,
so when I got a 40% off a piece of fabric coupon from Hobby Lobby, I decided to take action and finally go look at fabrics.
I picked out a couple that I liked (there were so many though), and knew I had to get the ball rolling on learning how to sew since I finally had the fabric for them.
I went over to Chase's parents house to borrow his mom's sewing machine and she showed me how to use it.
Using a couple of the tutorials I found online on how to make a throw pillow cover, I was able to make 4 pillows that I love!
Here's the two patterns that I did:
This is the back of the cover:
They are by no means perfect (I need to get better at sewing in a straight line), but they are better than I thought I was capable of, so I'm pretty proud of them!
I have thought of so many other projects that I already want to do.
I think I know what I want for Christmas... after all, Chase's mom is going to need her sewing machine back eventually!
