I have been inspired by so many of the blogs to get out the elusive sewing machine. There have not been many good times spent attempting to teach myself to sew. I am ashamed to admit that dear hubby (the boss) has had to show me many times how to thread the machine, sew a somewhat straight stitch and talk me down from frustration. This has been my nemesis and I refuse to let it get me down again.
With ambitious plans I set forth to make a pillow that I had been dreaming up for quite some time. I had a burlap monogram from a bag that is no longer with us. I loved this bag and especially loved the monogram. I immediately realized that the piece would not be sewn on as an oval shape. Square and simple was the plan. My first mistake was not leaving enough burlap to give a nice fringed edge. Several other plans quickly failed and after a long and painstaking amount of time, I have a pillow. Obviously not the one I had planned on but one I can live with. For now! Any suggestions?
