i finally finished my tree skirt! i am so pleased with the finished product, and very proud of my work. i am so grateful to my mom for giving me the sewing gene (as well as buying me my sewing machine for christmas!). i also am super-duper grateful to misha's mom candie, who has been teaching me how to sew and being very patient with me- i couldn't have done it without her help!
i've also confidently sewn together a few pillows/cushions for our living room and porch from a very fun IKEA fabric. i did these all on my own, and while they are just about the easiest thing ever there were still road bumps in the process and i learned a lot. i'm so glad i've finally learned to sew, and am able to channel my creativity into making functional objects. next up: a cute spring dress, pillowcases for misha's sister, and my first tote bag!
