Default Fridays snuggle bed

Im sure that some of you saw in the million thread that i was attempting to make a snuggle bed today..well here it is. Its definatly not perfect I took a pic of my bad handstitching around the top so you all could see, it wasnt easy to do & I ran into some issues but I am proud of myself for sticking it out & finishing it.Today was also the very first time I have ever used a sewing machine in my life..

thanks Therese

the fabric said it was vintage I washed it this morning & it was a dark color seems it was sooo old I washed half the color right out of it lol but it looks nicer now IMO..I used my mini sewing machine (one of those $30 from walgreens lol) I sewed most of it crooked it does have a few straight spots though (pats self on the back) I couldnt figure out how to sew around the top with the sewing machine so I had to hand sew it but at least I did finish it.

Good job particularly since you never had lessons and you had a little machine that probably doesn't sew very straight. A regular sewing machine does most of the straight sewing for you, and you just have to kind of guide the fabric in so it doesn't get crooked.

Great job on hand sewing. I won't sew by hand for more than a few stitches and you went all the way around the top.

I hope your nice bed inspires you to try another sewing project.
