Several years ago, my sewing machine went caput and I could not find a good deal on one. I didn't want to buy a brand new one because I knew I didn't sew that much. About a year later, my sister mentioned she had bought a new sewing machine since she was taking up quilting. Turns out she didn't use her other machine (which was almost brand new). So she gave it to me. My niece Amy gave me a pretty cover for it that she made. I hurried home and found me a new table at a yard sale for $10 to use for my sewing machine. 

Fast forward 2 years....here I set with my sewing machine still under the pretty cover. Material purchased that I liked but didn't know what to make. Threads and scissors in my pretty sewing box. And I have yet to plug it in and give it a try. I am so ashamed. 

Now that I am getting things settled in and my busy crazy schedule is going to calm down, I am going to start sewing. But I need easy stuff to do because I like to see instant results. I went to Pinterest to get some fun ideas of easy sewing projects. Check out what all I found. 

I really love the ribbon on the dish cloths. What handy gifts for birthdays and Christmas or even part of a wedding shower gift. I could make these up and keep them on hand for those unexpected moments when you need a gift. They would also make wonderful hostess gifts for my Thirty-One parties.

Don't feel too badly. I have failed at this twice. Many years ago while I was delirious with the flu, I told my husband if I had a sewing machine, I would sew. He bought one for me and many years later, it was sold at a garage sale. Like new, only used a couple of times. Then I inherited a sewing machine and DH thought I would use it for mending. That then went the way of Goodwill. I hope you are able to do your projects. They look very nice.
