Attempted Sewing

I attempted a sewing project recently, from Bend-the-Rules Sewing, by Amy Karol. I haven't sewn by a pattern in years, since junior high school. I am not a seamstress. I am not a perfectionist. (Notice the fabric is unironed.) Granted, there were no seams to be hemmed up, the cuffs are just rolled, no buttons or pleats or even much to cut. But the end result turned out pretty well, and I learned how to sew a bias tape edging.
And the recipient liked her new little sweatery thing.

The other child meant to receive one decided she didn't like the style, so number two never got sewn. I think I'm going to try some beach bags next--if I start now, I'll probably be done by August.
