La Verne, Califo...
Well, this is my very first sewing project ever! I actually made it in Feb. around Valentine’s day, but unfortunately I’m only posting it now. Anyway, I picked a simple pattern and with a little help understanding the instructions, made it through easily enough. My local fabric store didn’t have shirring elastic so I used a very thin elastic with a wide zig-zag stitch to keep in place. This was all it took to get me hooked, finding the time is another thing though…
