okay, i need a shower now. too much information? perhaps. but i just worked up a sweat completing my very first bunting banner!!! i wanted to make one for the upcoming craft fair that i am in. so i went for it. i even made my own bias binding. (i hope i'm getting all of these terms right) the reason this is such a big deal for me is because i am not a sewer.
i just started to teach myself how to sew a couple of years ago, so this was a bit of a challenge for me. if you look closely, it's certainly not perfect, but i'm happy with how it turned out. especially considering that i did everything freehand. (except i used a really handy tool from dressew to help make the binding)
now the thought of starting a (small) quilt doesn't seem quite so daunting.
