I am good just really disorganized and don't seem to be getting anything done these days. Yes, I have been sewing here and there. I have made two more bags and two basic denim cushions for two small dogs to sleep on. I have…"
"Good Day, Sadie. Sorry I did not reply earlier. I used a plastic packet that I had at home and its not even exactly the same as that one. I changed the shape of the handles slightly. It is all about adding your own twist to what you are making."
Disorganized.... Why's that getting you stressed out? if you want to see some real disorganized mess, you can visit my blog to see my sewing room and I can bet that you'll think that you're very extremely organized compared to what a slob I am :p I prefer the mess, I can find all my scissors, pins, tape and everything at hand. Organization for me, means stashing everything away on a rack or in a closet... which just makes everything harder to get to when I need it. I like having everything at hand...
Denim cushions must have been a lot of fun, huh! Did you use the denim needle when sewing those? I broke a needle once when I was sewing over a zipper and some vinyl backed nylon. The needle broke in three pieces and one went flying and got stuck in my hair.. That was one scary experience!! I didn't sew for the next three weeks :D
Making cusions for your dogs is the most sweetest thing!! Please post pictures of them curled up on your cusions!! I'd really really love to see the pictures (or you can email them to me at least. My email id is "firstname.lastname@example.org")
I thought I should visit your profile to see what you've been up to.. And you hven't uploaded any of your creations' photos... now you can't say that you haven't really made anything.. because I know you made some gorgeous cushion covers I'm dying to see...

I am so a newbie too so I may not really be the best person to comment... but I'll do so anyway :p
Cushion covers are anything but simple.. if you've made cushion covers
1. You've overcome the fear of cutting pretty fabric AND big pieces of pretty fabric at that... (both of these have been real scary for me... still are!! I limit myself to small coin purses and bags so I don't have to cut out some large chunks out of my pretty fabric and then worry about getting that messed up)
2. Cushion covers mean you now have straight lines (now don't laugh, but scraggly lines can be a bad thing.. and though none of my friends tell me that my crazy lines look terrible I can see plain see that!)
That's all you need to be able to have to start sewing! And right now.. you've pretty much already graduated!
Anyhow.. I guess its always good to have some cotton fabric at hand so you can just cut it up and do whatever... I grade cotton as the number one fabric... because it cuts up nicely in straighter lines, doesn't dance around when you have to cut it.. stays in one nice little place.. and doesn't fray a lot right away either... nice to be cut by rotary cutters too.
