Back to sewing

I almost forgot about the new hobby I started last year which surprisingly turned to be something I actually enjoyed. Sewing that was. For several months last year, I had not touched the sewing machine due to the lack of time. Before I completely forgot how to thread the machine and the whole sewing lessons, I might as well do something. My interest in home d├ęcor was at its peak during the last quarter of the year. I love those accent pillows but some are just ridiculous expensive. If I could sew dresses and skirts then why couldn't I sew the simple pillowcases? The next day I headed to JoAnn and bought some pillows and fabric home with me and started sewing that night. I just loved the end result. It is incredibly easy and more reasonably priced (as long as the fabric for home improvement is on sale, they can get pricey). With the pillows that I have, I can sew and make new pillowcases as many as my heart desires. I would like to get back to do some more sewing in 2015 but will see how well I can stick with that goal .  photo w1_zpse5de429d.jpg  photo w2_zps727d1ace.jpg  photo w3_zpsa5e4c38d.jpg  photo a9_zps6d485d4f.jpg


  1. Nelah, you are so good at sewing!!! You make the cutest things. Those pillow covers are awesome. Love the print and color.

  2. Those pillow covers are so cute, and that's an adorable dress. I love the color.
    I can't believe how expensive some accent pillows are; I also started on some but never got around to finishing them. Hopefully, I'll get to them this year.

  3. Glad to hear that you grew to enjoy sewing as I remember you weren't too fond of it when you first started. It must be so satisfying when your pieces come together and since you can make your own pillow covers now... you decorating options are limitless :)

  4. Love your creations! I got a sewing machine for my birthday and I finally have today to figure it out. I haven't touched a sewing machine since the 7th grade so I have a lot of relearning to do. I'm scared but excited! :)
