Yes! Yes! Yes!

There comes a day in every crafters life when they have to learn how to sew. Perhaps I'm being a tad overdramatic, but I feel as if that day FINALLY arrived for me. I was finding all of these fun projects I wanted to create, but alas - I didn't know how to sew nor operate my brand new swanky sewing machine.

Then, after missing a few sewing sessions at JoAnn Fabrics .. I begged my neighbor to teach me how to sew by offering her a meal in return. I blogged on Monday about our apron making adventure and today I've got some BIG NEWS.

Yes I, Jordon J. Furnell, made my very own pillow. Disregard the fact that it took me 4 hours and I received many injuries from straight pins.

Sewing Swag
My sewing bucket list includes many pillow projects. The first one being an adorable Bow Pillow found here. Bless this sweet blogger for posting a step by step guide for newbies like me. Here's a peak into my journey creating a brand-spankin' new 4th of July pillow for my crib.

Whew! We've Got a Bow.

Let the choirs sing! It's a real pillow that one can actually use. I've been hugging it for the past 24 hours to reassure myself that it is real and that I actually made it. My life is complete.

What shall I sew next? Anyone need a new wedding dress? Maybe a pair of overalls? Only kidding. I'll stick to pillows for a few months.


  1. Cute cute!! I want to learn to sew! My grandmother has been sewing since she was a little girl and I've never had her teach me. I think it's time!!

  2. So cute! I wish sewing machines didn't intimidate me!

    1. If I can sew.. you can most definitely do it!

  3. omgosh! I JUST posted about how my machine is jammed and I can't do any sewing :(

    1. Oh nooo!! I don't even know what I would do if my clogged up. Yikes!

  4. I'm so impressed that you took on the sewing challenge. I don't know how to do any of it and honestly find it a bit intimidating. Good for you! Your pillow looks great.
