Sewing Projects-DONE

Trying to learn to sew is teaching me patience! I am definitely not a natural & when I think about the time it has taken me to make one pillow w/a zipper and cording/welting, it is humbling.  My first project was in a class & I ended up with this:
I finally made a matching pillow by myself weeks later & it took a few hours because I had to keep rechecking the instructions. So sad, but they turned out great! When you have 5 pets, zippers are essential so I can wash the covers. The chairs they are sitting on are a Craigslist find **love them** & I HOPE to make  indoor/outdoor cushions for them w/a fab Trina Turk fabric & put them on our patio.  

The next sewing project I attempted in class was making a sham for the guestroom. Hours later at home, I now have two! 

I bought Photoshop & am trying to learn how to use it. It took me a while to figure out how to get the date stamp off of the photos! Anyone who has a quick way of doing this, let me know!

  1. in Photoshop you can use the clone stamp tool. I think it's just under the eraser. alt+click the spot to copy from and then start cloning. The colors and shading will match better. Obviously some backgrounds will work better than others. This white on the pillow should be easy enough though.

    Congrats on learning to sew!
