For Love and Bridal Showers

I'd like you all to know I'm working on a DIY project as part of my gift to my college roommate for her bridal shower this weekend (oh hey Christine!), and it's taking everything in me not to throw in the towel (or fabric). I would tell you what it is, but it's a surprise for goodness sake, people.

You see, though I've known about the shower for weeks at this point, it wasn't until Monday that I decided I needed to make this. And with my schedule this week I really don't have time to be fiddling with a sewing machine that I seem to forget how to operate every 200 stitches or so. Nevertheless, I gathered my supplies Monday evening and got to work cutting and pinning and, well, copying and forging and tracing because who needs patterns when you can just trace something you already have?

But anyway, this has been a particularly hard project and I'm remembering just how much I dislike sewing after all. Not to mention I accidentally cut a hole (well, three small holes) in this not too long ago and have to come up with a fix somehow.

When I'm done, I'll most certainly not be posting a tutorial because I feel that's quite offensive to people who actually know what they're doing. Instead, I'll post some lessons learned for those brave enough to pull out their sewing machines and try their hand at this, all in the name of love and bridal showers.
