A while back someone in my building had put out a box of fabric samples. I am never one to let a pile of possible craft supplies go to waste, so I picked the best out of the lot and brought it back to my apartment. There they sat, like so many other craft supplies I had at one point fancied. Yards of fabric, gathering dust. Taking up space on my dresser. I am nothing if not a good piler.
Last week I decided to do something about it. My coworker Jessica has a sewing machine, so I brought the scraps to her place. I picked out the one fabric I liked best, a lime poufy silk, and Jessica showed me how to sew a pillow. With a machine. Magic!
Lots of fun, don’t think I’ll do it again. I’m not much for the straight, neat lines.
