I've been finding some great links off of How About Orange's blog to cute and easy projects. I've been wanting to learn to sew something new besides the purses I make for the Christmas boutiques, so when I found this link, I was excited....it looked easy enough to follow the directions, and the pictures she had of ones she made were SO cute. So I gave it a shot. I didn't want to buy material for my first one in case I totally messed it up, so I found some scraps in my closet...an old sheet that was all frayed on the edges, but good enough in the middle for what I needed it for, and then some left over polka-dotted fabric from when we recovered our dining room chairs.
It was fun to make and I like how it turned out. I'm excited to try it again with different fabric!
