Using your Word program

This green pillow in Lauren's room was rather dull so I used my handy dandy seam ripper to take it apart. I used Microsoft word to find a cute font and printed out the letter. The fonts drop down menu will go 72 I believe, but if you type in for example 300 or 500 it will re size the letter. I used a blanket stitch and walla...a jazzy pillow for Lauren's bed.

Serged Satchel

The pattern is by Indigo Junction and is called the serged satchel. I found the directions to be Horrible with a capital H! I took me about 18+ hours to sew/serge and cost me approx $60.00. I doubt I'll make this again but it did turn out cute. Lauren thinks it is fantastic!
