My First Sewing Project

This is my first sewing project. It is a baby blanket with chenille on one side and satin trim. 

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 :) 

This is the stitch I chose for the edge. It looked very vintage to me, which is the look I am going for. I am very attracted to a blend of vintage/old and simple/modern.

I can't wait to make more! 

Anyone out there want to share their first or most recent sewing project?

I love the fabric. That is my favorite part of sewing, looking for fabric!
