Projects

Now that I know how to sew, I've had a lot of fun doing little projects around the house...

A few weeks ago I painted and upholstered this bench (which didn't require any sewing, but it did require cutting the material, which I think is the hardest part). It now sits at the foot of our bed with a "His" and "Hers" basket for misc. stuff found laying around the house...

I also made this fun apron with Rachel and Sam. We all got together a few weeks ago and cut the patterns and then finished them on our own, it was a lot of fun. Here's the finished product:

Here is it on...which isn't the best picture since I was taking it of myself.

My latest project was a pillow for our guest room. I'm quite proud of this one cause it was the first time I had used trim and velcro and because it only took me 2 hours from start to finish!! I was worried that I would get done and my pillow insert wouldn't fit inside...but it did!

Here's Trinity helping out...


Here I am inserting the pillow into it's case.


AND here is it...resting in it's new home in the guest room!
