adventures in sewing

as i have mentioned a few times, learning to sew is pretty high on my bucket list. 
so when my friend ashley offered to teach me some basic about sewing, i jumped at the opportunity!


ashley & her husband are southern california natives and have such a cute apartment with a beachy feel to it. ashley decided that she wanted to cover her brown & green decorative pillows to match a little better. she found a really straight forward tutorial for making pillow covers via pinterest & bought some simple star fish fabric from amazon. what a cheap & easy option for covering pillows!


^^^ashley even let me give it a try!^^^


& the finished product!!! isn't that the cutest pillow cover? and it only took like 20 minutes. 
next we are going to try to tackle making maxi & pencil skirts with jersey fabric!

thanks for a fun morning, ash!
