Sewing Machine Plans

I was very lucky to open the above wondrous item on my birthday - isn't it beautiful? As I've mentioned once or twice on this blog I've been wanting this machine for a while now as I want to alter some of my clothes, make some more cushions and generally be a bit more crafty. 

Now that I've got the sewing machine I need to get some other bits and pieces and get started! First things first I've started to collect a few bits of material for my upcoming awesome projects as well as some super cute ribbon to add as the finishing touches to said projects.

I couldn't resist the above cute and colourful additions to my fast developing sewing bits and bobs stash - I mean could you?! I've also added some pins, thread and scissors to the stash so it's about time I got crafting. 

First up I think I might make some bunting so that I can practise all the stitches, etc. Then I'm going to start on one of the following:

 a bow belt, isn't it cute?
a high waisted skirt - apparently it only takes an hour...

a pom pom trim cushion - cute or what!

Eventually (I'm thinking ten years or so) I'm going to attempt to reupholster our sofa, make a dress and alter some clothes that are too big for me. But for now I'm going to have fun practicing everything. What about you, what is your latest sewing project?
