The last time I’ve sewn something (except for the occasional clothes repair) was a pillow case. It was hand sewn, too. That was way back 12 years ago. I came to the big metro with very few things it could actually fit in one big luggage. And since I needed pillow cases, and I had scrap fabric big enough for one, I went ahead and sewed one instead of buying it from the mall which was, to me, that time, very expensive.
So I was really excited to sew something a bit more complicated than stitching two ends of the fabric. LOL!
