Sew Much Fun!

Yes, you will have to excuse me for the corny post title, ha! I couldn't resist : ) So, I we finally finished the first sewing project! It has actually been finished for about a week, but I just got the chance to take pictures yesterday and just now getting a chance to post them...I've been a busy lady lately, whew!

Okay...let me be honest...

This roman shade was a total pain in my butt to make. However, I am fully convinced that I picked the worst pattern EVER! I have sewn a couple of simple things before. My momma is a GREAT seamstress and has taught me a couple of things over the years (when I would listen), and I am pretty good at following directions so I thought this project wouldn't be so bad. Well, that may have proven to be true had the pattern actually come with directions that made sense!!! I was great with the actual sewing part of it, but the rest was total jargon to me...made NO sense!


 So, I had to recruit some help...

Luckily, I am married to a super smart man who can fiigure out just about anything! We worked together over the span of a few weeks, maybe months (only because we never have time off together...) and it finally came together : ) I was in a hurry when I took the pictures so the pictures aren't the greatest, but here is the debut of my first major sewing project...










Well, there you have it...

I will definitely be working on more sewing projects in the future, but hopefully something a little less confusing : )
