I FINALLY learned to use a sewing machine and made the Quidditch cross stitch piece I made into a pillow. Well, I made two - one for a friend and one for me since I really liked the cross stitch design.
Stages of almost finished:
I learned to do a slip stitch (Or am learning as I see) to hide the stitches when closing the pillow.
I'm currently working on finishing the second one! The first one is all ready to be shipped to my friend! The pillows aren't as "perfect" as I wanted, but I'm happy with it. This project involved a lot of screw ups and undoing stitches.
