My First Sewing Project

For today's post I decided to highlight what I've learned thus far in my sewing classes.  While there I learned how to properly read, iron, and cut my pattern.  I also learned how to my pin my pattern to my fabric, cut out my fabric and finally I begun sewing on my machine.  Although I finished my pillowcase at home, I wanted to share with you what I learned in my sewing class.  I can truly say that I'm very proud of myself, so proud that I bought a Go Green Bag Pattern and I will be sewing my first bag.  YEAH!!  Here are the patterns and fabrics that I used for my Pillowcase and Go Green Bag:

PS...The daredevil that I am, I decided to join a Sew Swap, so I got a chance to sew something special for someone and I will be mailing it off tomorrow.  Also, I'm so excited about how my it turned out and I will keep you posted about the Sew Swap;)
