My first sewing project!

I know that everyone thinks that I am really crafty, but I have a confession to make. I have actually never made anything with a sewing machine! I have always wanted to make something, I just never had a sewing machine that worked, and didn't have the patience to learn. Well, thanks to my very generous M-I-L, I now have a sewing machine that actually works! As for the patience to learn part, I just decided the only way I was ever going to learn to sew was to just jump in and try! I have had this zebra material for over a year now, and finally made the curtain that I intended to make a year ago! It's not perfect, but I'm pretty proud of it! I think it turned out really well for a first attempt-especially a first attempt without a pattern!

Yea! My new curtain in the kitchen!

I love how it turned out!

The cute little pleated ribbon that I added to the bottom of the curtain!

I can't wait to start my next project! I am going to make a cute little pillowcase for Jayden! I know it's nothing big, but I'm learning!

Congrats! Those curtains are adorable! Love the zebra stripes and trim! I'm emailing you some instructions on a pillowcase that my sewing group did several weeks ago for a service project. Good luck!
