I'm a Sewing Machine

Ever since I got my amazing new sewing machine for Christmas, my head has been swimming with projects that I need to learn to sew. So far, I've only learned how to make one project, and I am perfecting my skills! 
This week I found some time to make a few more baby receiving blankets while mom worked on a crocheted blanket for my baby girl :) My skills are slowly improving! 



These will make for some lovely baby shower gifts! 
I'm thrilled to be gaining confidence with another crafty skill and expanding my creative repertoire. 
The more things I can make myself, the better!


My mind is swimming with more projects to learn, but the next one on my agenda is some cute snack bags, similar to the one shown below. 
Learning to attached velcro shouldn't be to hard, but I'd like to make some with zippers too, which will probably present a bit of a challenge. YouTube sewing videos here I come!

Anyone have any other easy projects to recommend?? 
I'm open to ideas!

Those look so good! I miss my sewing machine - it's been in storage since we moved, can't wait to start again! A friend was saying that a great project (especially for new mums and gifts) is to make extra big nursing wraps/covers that can double as blankets since she said the ones in the stores are generally too small for that? Idk exactly what those are, but it sounds fun :) Also, you'll rock zippers - it's really not hard since the machine does all the work of measuring etc. :)

Those blankets look amazing! You're getting super good! Here's a couple of easy projects that I've been meaning to try, though not till after the quilt is done probably!

Yes! That's such a great idea! And a great gift for new moms - my sister-in-law made one for me and I love it!
