My first sewing project...

I've been working on a new sewing project on this snowy afternoon, but I wanted to share pictures with you of my first completed project. I did this one from a pattern...and in the process of trying to teach yourself how to sew...reading a pattern is like reading Greek...so anyway...it was a little rough. But, I think it turned out okay for being for my first shot at a sewing machine!

It's a bunting for my new niece. I started it in October...when Robert bought me my sewing machine for my birthday...and it finally got completed and given to her when she was a few days shy of turning a month old (in February)...details :)

Then we made the trip to the SAV to give it to her....

I cut the material for the "newborn" size...either I need to learn how to really read patterns or she's just really a Smith :)

And these are what I like to call the..."What are you doing to me Auntie?" pictures...Actually I'm pretty sure she's saying that in the pic above of the two of us when she's staring at me...



Oh well. Thank you Aniston for letting yourself be my sewing model. Don't worry, the project I worked on today wasn't for you...but I gotta go back and redo the length...there must be a lot of tall people in this world!
