and here it is. Other than being a little long, it came out alright. I won't be going into business any time soon! :)

What a great job, I so wish I could sew. But I don't even have a sewing machine. I am jealous of all the talented people.

It's really not hard at all and starting out with a simple machine is really easy:)All you have to do to make simple blankets for example is just cut the piece and sew around the edges in a straight line. Thats a good thing to start out with and some of the Easy-sew patterns are very easy to understand and follow.
You should try:):) It would be fun!

Thank you all! You're so kind. :)

Just a couple hours. The actual sewing is the quick and easy part. Figuring out how the item is made (I didn't have a pattern--I just looked at the ones others have made) took a while. Measuring and cutting the material is the time-consuming part!

I concur, Dazy Mae. Sewing is just like anything--it takes practice. I don't do anything complicated even now. Every time I make something (and this time was no exception), I screw something up and have to re-do it! That's just part of the process with me apparently!

Again, thank you all!

WOW! YOU did an awesome job! That is soo cute too! I just recently fell in love with sewing a few months back which I never knew I could do LOL so I don't have a sewing machine yet, but I really really want one and when I do I am going to TRY to make one too! This one really inspires me to give it a try at least! You did soo well on it! It's cute and the colors are awesome! :thumbright:

Looks like you did a great job! That's my first after the holidays project, and if it turns out, I'm sure my kids will keep me busy for quite some time making them for their dogs!

That is REALLY nice!

(I'm too lazy to go through every post, so I'm sorry if it's been asked lol) Did you use a regular pillow for the bottom part or did you stuff it? I've been wanting to try making something like that and can't figure out what I should do lol.
