I have wanted to learn how to sew for probably 20 years now, and considering I am 27 years old, that is a huge majority of my life! I have been scared of sewing machines, and have had unsuccessful attempts at learning how to sew several times throughout the years. But, the urge to learn never went away. So, a few weeks ago, I rounded up some old text books that I never look at anymore, and traded them in on Amazon. Then with the gift card they gave me I bought myself a little sewing machine!
I am so excited about learning a new skill! The first thing that I wanted to learn to make was a cover for my Kindle paper white - which is my most favorite piece of technology that I own!
I found this tutorial very helpful!
This cover is my first successful attempt.
I do love the way it came out, but I was just practicing with this fabric.
It is so fun to make things with fabric!
But again, I was just practicing, so I would fell more comfortable when sewing with the gorgeous fabric I picked out for my cover.
This is the cover that I sewed for myself!
I absolutely love this fabric!
I've always loved reading on my paper white, and now it is even more enjoyable!
For my own cover, I opted not to add a pocket.
I am very proud of how far my sewing has come in the last couple weeks.
Believe me, my first few attempts were terrible!
Stay tuned for future sewing projects! I am currently working on a gift, mixing crochet and sewing. I am excited, and hopeful that it is turn out neatly!
