Ok, it's actually my first since I made a terrible pillow and teddy bear in 10 years ago in home ec. I'm pretty sure it still counts though. Smiley

I got my sewing machine as a wedding gift last month, and I finally had a chance to use it on these pillow cases! I'm really proud, because I just copied the design of my other cases, and figured out my machine by myself. It took me about 6 hours to figure it out and get it all together. I think the next thing will be really fast though, because almost all of the actual work was done in the last hour or so. Any who, on to the pics!




Sorry for the image quality, I took these photos with my phone. I was just really excited to get pics up right away!

Thanks! I'm a big fan of how the fabric goes with the blankets. I'm going to make curtains (with my moms help) next. That fabrics is even more fun, with big funky flowers.
