My first project on my new machine was an easy one to help me get to grips with it. But it's such a great machine to use that this took no time at all. I needed cushion covers for our couch and while I'm waiting for my newspaper print fabric to arrive, I bought some cheap red material from eBay to do the larger cushions with.
It was good to work with and it seems hard wearing enough so I was quite pleased with it. In two evenings (I can only sew once my kids are in bed and dinner has been cooked so some projects will take a while) I managed to make two covers.
They are just simple envelope style covers - nothing fancy. And now that I feel less rusty I'm going to attempt some more exciting projects. I'm waiting on a vintage vogue dress pattern arriving and I've bought some extremely fabulous shoes in the sales, so I will hopefully be running up a dress to match. I can't wait.
