Did I tell you I got a new sewing machine for Christmas? My old machine was super old and not working very well. That’s one of the reasons I haven’t posted any sewing projects lately. I finally had some time to try out my new machine and I love it. It has ninety-nine stitches… so far I’ve mastered one – the straight stitch.
I dug through my fabric stash and found this vintage tea towel that I had forgotten about. It’s so bright and cheery.
My favorite part are these little curtain valances that came on the tea towel.
The tea towel was the perfect size to make a pillow and making a pillow was an easy way to try out my new sewing machine.
I decided to make the pillow with a flange edge so I wouldn’t lose any of the cute floral pattern that runs along the edge of the towel.
Super cute and easy. Honestly, it took me longer to figure out how to thread my new sewing machine than to make this pillow.
Thanks for visiting.
I happily link at the parties listed here and
