For the first sewing class through JoAnns, we made a pillow case. This was my first time ever properly using my sewing machine. Here is my completed project!

It's always exciting to make something for the first time on your machine, isn't it?

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

Good job! My first sewing project several years ago was a pillow too, and to be honest it was hideous... Sad So congrats on your first sewing project being such a huge sucess!

That's a cute print that you chose, I like it a lot. My first sewing project on my serger was to make pillow cases for my bed too. The cases came out great and it got me used to threading the serger which seemed pretty involved at the time. The great thing about pillowcases is that they can be made up very quickly on a serger and you can recycle other fabrics like old sheets, tablecloths or just bits of lightweight cotton that you have hanging around. It's a very simple and satisfying project. I have about 4 different sets of pillowcases now that I've made. Lots of fun.  Smiley

I think I'm going to make some new modern throw pillows soon. My old pillows are starting to look really ratty and you can buy such beautiful fabrics on etsy .com now. I really want to experiment with some of those lovely fabrics.  Cheesy
