My first projects...

So I just got my first sewing/embroidery machine a few weeks ago. Before I got sick....along with everyone else in Warner Robins I managed to finish a couple of projects.
See my little two year old in this Beatles shirt.... so cute. Noah gave it to him and I believe this started his love of the Beatles. He wore it through that winter, then we cut off the black sleeves so he could wear it during the warmer weather. He still can 'squeeze' into it (only for sleeping purposes).
I kept saying I wanted to turn it into a pillow for him and I finally got started.
I bought some grey Jersey knit for the back.



Here's the finished project! I'm happy with it considering I've NEVER used a sewing machine in my life!


This was the second thing I made.... A passie clip :)
My mom wants me to make her a pillow next (NOT from her favorite tshirt)... It's scarier making something for someone else... I think I need some lessons first :)

Great job! I want an embroidery machine...I keep telling Brandon it would be cheaper than me taking ALL of Elle's things to be monogrammed by someone else :)

Good job Stacia! You and Amber have both been busy! Makes me want to break my sewing machine out!

Wow! You did a great job. I would have never guessed you'd never used a sewing machine. You make me want to go out and buy one. I would love to order a paci clip from you when you have a chance to make one.

Now who would have thought to make a pillow like that. I love the contrast on the corners. You have always had an artistic streak in you. The Christmas village you painted is beautiful.
Love you,
Grandma
