Last night I went to Borders and bought a book on basic sewing techniques and patterns. I found a really helpful and cool book callled, "Sew Everything Workshop" By Diana Rupp. This book is put together very well. Colorful, easy to follow and wirebound it was a good purchase! I decided to make the simplest project in the book for my first project. I made a pincushion for my needles to store next to my sewing machine. It took me about 15 minutes and I could make so many more!
