Actually, My very first sewing project ever! I came accross a sweet, cheap sewing machine, spent a day or two learning how to use it (my boyfriend taught me ha ha ha), and then just went at it.

It is far from perfect, but I really love it anyways. Next time I will definately wrap the border around the front and back, instead of just the front like I did here.

Can't wait to take it to the beaches, parks, rivers, festivals, and mountains this Summer!

And here's my boyfriend modeling it for me on a nice & sunny January's day haha :]

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

That's your first sewing project?  Good thing you found that sewing machine--it was clearly meant to be!   Wink

And I love the colors.  They make me think of cherry pie  Cheesy
