I've spent probably half an hour total sewing since we moved into our house in January. Well, no more! I finally made--and finished--something. All it is is a hunk of fleece squared off and bound with blanket binding from a package. It sounds easy, and it was, but I still managed to make things pretty crooked. It was so slippery! But I'm a beginner, and I'm trying to accept the fact that nothing will come out perfectly. I'm counting this as practice, and luckily it turned out very usable!
