I actually spent more time looming around JoAnne's trying to pick the right fabrics than I did actually making the project, haha.
It's my first real sewing project, and I have to say that I'm proud of myself. There are a few quirks here and there, but I'm happy with the end result.
Also, it was my first time really using a sewing machine. I've never been too fond of them ["Hello, Mr. Rapidly-Moving-Needle-Uncomfortably-Close-To-My-Fingers."], but it wasn't so bad once I got in the groove~
