Because of my new Pinterest account, I've been reviewing some of my blogs over the last year and realized I never got to post about my first sewing endeavors last summer! So here ya go.
Last Christmas (2009), Brandon gave me a sewing machine - something I had been wanting for a long time. Between teaching, earning my Kindermusik license, and finishing my Kodaly homework for the year, I didn't have the chance to start using it until my summer break began. My first project was inspired by a picture I found in a magazine (maybe Southern Living - I wish I could remember). I had no pattern, just a little help from the sweet old lady in the Hobby Lobby sewing department. Here are some pictures of my first creations - dish towel aprons!

I also attempted to make a child-sized version for my friend Emily's sweet little one year old, Piper. It's still a little big for her, I think. There are lots of things I need to fix with this pattern, but I think it's a good start.
