I've been helping my girlfriend learn to sew. We started with some simple hand stitches and she recently progressed to using the machine, much to her delight! An old T-shirt was renewed as a throw pillow slipcover.
This project is very suitable for beginners. See my previous post on upcycling tees into a tote bag for tips on sewing with knits.
- Thread, scissors, pins, sewing machine, bobbin
Sewing tip: when you turn corners of sewing projects inside out, use something narrow and pointed, like a knitting needle, to push the fabric into the corner and make nice, sharp corners.
Thanks for stopping by and keep living the qute life!
p.s. I'm not taking a side in favor of the White Sox. I'm not much of a sports fan, but if I had to pick, I suppose I'd say GO REDS!
