sewing projects.

i finally finished a few of the sewing projects i had been wanting to get around to but havent had time for yet...the first of which is a new case for my laptop. i made one before this, but it was quite shameful and obviously homemade. when my sister told me it was ugly, i decided i needed to give it another try -- this time it came out much better.

the second project was to make some new pillows for my bed, which was looking quite barren before the new additions. i didnt actually make new pillows, but bought some old ugly ones at D.I. for about $2 total, and then bought $1 fabric at walmart and recovered them.

I never said it was ugly! I just said it looked home-made... but the new one is quite lovely!

Most days, most hours, I wish I was you! AND I named them stripper names because I thought it was funny and I like to laugh and I am sorry you did not think it was funny.

I love it! I've been meaning to make pillows as a personal project, but I haven't had the time.

Looks great though and very inspiring!
