I wasn't sure what to do, except that I wanted to know how to work the darn machine again and a few simple hems. But aside from playing around on the machine, my mom wanted me to have a finished product at the end. I had seen a cute idea on Pinterest to add doilies to pillows, while driving to my mom's tonight that idea popped into my head and TA-DA! I was going to make an accent pillow for my bed.
My mom was patient with me and showed me a few tricks of the trade. Okay, not that I became a sewing whiz...but I felt like I knew what I was doing.
Practicing some straight stiches
Some more practicing and then sewing on the doily to my fabric for the front of the pillow
