My mom bought me my first sewing machine for my birthday. It is so nice! It has around 70 different types of stitches, which lets me be extra creative. Cyndi, my mother-in-law, helped me start this project out. She helped me set up the thread and gave good guidance.
I chose fabric that didn't necessarily look babyish. I also embrace the mess ups in my stitching. It makes it seem homemade, but hopefully I do get better :)
