My awesome sister gave me her old sewing machine this summer and I was very excited to set it up last week. I may have had to watch a you tube video on how to thread it, but I figured it out pretty quickly. As I mentioned in my previous post, we have hardwood floors in our new place. I knew I needed a rug, with color since my couches are dark, the floor is dark, and my tables are dark. So, after two weeks of being here, I found a great rug. Now I just needed some killer accent pillows to pull it all together, right? Well, these aren't it:
Our previous pillows are terrible. There's a big marker stain and a few rips and they were just not attractive. So, I decided to cover them.
I got to work cutting, ironing and pinning. I followed this tutorial, which was very helpful for a beginner.
