Let me introduce you to my new sewing machine.I got her a few weeks ago as an early B'day present from my wonderful Mother-in-law. I wouldn't say that my sewing machine and I are best friends yet, but we are definitely getting to know one another. We started off my making some curtains for the baby's room.

I have NEVER made curtains before. I really have never sewn much of anything before. I remember taking Home Ec in middle school and we made some kind of pillow, but for that I had someone there showing me step by step what needed to be done. I also made a quilt for a good friend of mine, but for that project I had another friend showing me the ropes. These curtains were a solo mission and I'm not gonna lie...I was intimidated! I didn't have a pattern and it was up to me how I wanted them to look. SO....I picked out pink fabric and I layered white behind it so they wouldn't be thin. Then for the top and bottom I added some white fabric that had pink polka dots on it. I am really proud of myself for starting and completing this project. There are some definite flaws but overall I am happy with how they turned out. Here are a few pictures of the completed project.
Kevin just laughs and says "This is definitely a little girls room." It is pretty funny how it all started with the bedding and snowballed from there. I also go this cute mobile for the baby's crib.
Now all of the major decorating is done. Maybe just a little something here or there. I will show pictures of the full finished project soon :)
