Pin Cushion

This is a pin cushion that I made from scraps of fabric. I think it looks cool.

Sewing Projects

I recently got a sewing machine, a Brother XL-2600i, and attempted to hem the pair of pants pictured above. They were about three inches too long, and I kept tripping on them. I also stepped on the bottom while sitting down once, causing the seam that runs up and down the seat of the pants to rip a bit. [I know what you’re thinking, but I swear, that’s actually how it happened!]

I didn’t do a fantastic job on the bottom hems, but I am pretty pleased with how the butt seam came out. I did that part last, which makes me feel like I’m making progress.
