My first sewing project ever!

Today Liz {my super amazing talented friend} came over and taught me how to sew! I have done it maybe one time before but I was just goofing around not really making anything. My mother in law made me the cutest pillows when Skyler and I were married, but the yarn on them started to frae really bad and I had red fuzz balls every where so I decided it was time to recover the pillows! So here are some before/during/after photos...


Before picture:


The cute new fabric!

Liz teaching me to sew (she made the first one and then I made the rest)


Now its my turn to try :)


Praying I dont mess it up!


My first sewing project ever! Only 2 more to go!


After


All 4 pillows! {I am planning on getting 4 smaller pillows and covering them with red fabric to place in front of them :)}

Thanks for all your help Liz, you're the best! I love them!!

Adorable! I love the fabric. It's amazing what just changing the pillows does to the whole room. Almost like new furniture!

Sewing is such a lost art these days, and I feel bad that I haven't picked it up despite my mom's best efforts to teach me. It's on my to-do list (and has been for a long time!). I mentioned on Angela's blog that your hair cut is SUPER adorable as are you!

So I LOVE the pillows!!! We actually just got a new sewing machine to help keep me busy! I'm on my first and super basic project...a blanket! We'll have to be sewing buddies over the summer haha...but from the looks of it, you're MUCH better than I am...so you'll have to show me a few tricks :)
