Foray into Sewing

Today was my first attempt at sewing with my new machine.  And my first attempt at sewing anything on my own since home ec. in 8th grade.  I read the manual several times and heeded all the warnings for how it was likely I would injure myself with the needle.
I found some nice upholstery fabric on the extras table at the fabric mill store, so armed with that and my new machine, I let loose.
I did a little only research into patterns and ultimately decided on a simple envelope closure pillow case for an 18 inch pillow.  I'm pretty proud of myself.
