Adventures in Sewing: Pillow Success!

I am teaching myself to sew on my new sewing machine and it is so much fun! After searching everywhere --without success-- for a frame that would fit the Paper Whites finish (below), I decided I would make it into a pillow. This was a brave decision, as I was giving it as a gift and had never attempted this sewing magic before. But I had purchased some sewing 101 books and understood the basics. I found some pretty matching fabric and ribbon in the dollar bins at Michaels which were just perfect. After several practices, I felt fairly comfortable with it and...
Ta da! Behold - a wee giftie pillow!





While I was at it, I made up another little finish as an ornament, a freebie called "Cozy Christmas Wishes" from Lizzie Kate:
