Heart & Evergreen Pillow
I'm not sure it's best to write these posts up right after I finish a project, because I'm inevitably really sick of whatever project it is. But, here is the little heart and evergreen pillow! I might be more of a Rachel Ray when it comes to crafts -- 30-60 minutes start to finish sounds perfect right about now.
When working on each individual square, it felt very whoa pink and green, but all together it's much more neutral.
I was recently gifted a lovely new sewing machine, but I'm intimidated by it, so this was done all by hand (I know that it's insane to do that when I have a shiny new sewing machine!). Ladies with sewing machines: any tips?! It looks so scary and easy to make a mistake. I guess like any new gadget, you just have to get used to it.
I had grand plans in November to make a bunch of cute fabric ornaments this year to attach to my gifts -- we'll see if being done with this project inspires me to get going. Only ten more days to Christmas!!!
PS Super neat!
