So anyhow, I had decided that I wanted to try making these pocket pillow cases. I figured they wouldn't be too hard for "getting back into sewing". I used to make tons of little girl dresses and I was really good at sewing but I'm a "bit" rusty!
Of course, as soon as I got my stuff out I got a helper.
I may have pulled the stitching out of this pieces 10 times. That's when I was trying to get the tension right on the bobbin thread.
and the finished product. It was super easy once I got my tension figured out. Next time I will probably use the bigger rick rack.
I was thinking I'd just use fabric in my stash to make a bunch of these for the nieces and nephew for Christmas but after going to Wal-Mart for thread last night and taking a tour of the fabrics I think I'll buy new cute character fabric for the kiddos. I want to put in a book, maybe a personalized book mark, and then a cute felt animal or stuffed animal. For the bigger kids I was thinking instead of a book a notebook & gift card. Oh and a new pillow to put into them too of course! Anyhow, just a little fun project to keep me busy.Pin It
Good for you! Such darling gifts! It's amazing how getting the machine threaded right makes it work better. You are not alone in making this mistake. =)
I second Amy - good for you. I want to have time to be bored and knit scarves and the like.
And my machine made me so mad last time I packed it up and haven't taken it out since.
I may just sell it.
