I moved to Chicago a month ago but don't start school for a few more weeks, meaning I've had a lot of time to do crafts. Last week my mom brought me her extra sewing machine. My grandma bought it back in the '70s and it's the machine I learned to sew on when I was little.

I took it out today and made a little pillow - not my finest work, but it was fun to try my hand at sewing again. My sister bought me some cute glasses from Anthropologie for my birthday that happened to match the fabric, so I decided to have a little photo shoot, complete with props:

The other side:

I'd like to make dresses and skirts for myself, but I think I need to build my skills a bit more. Hopefully I'll have more projects to write about soon!
