Let me first say that I DO NOT SEW! So, this is a first for me. I was pretty nervous about it, and I am sure all of the flaws will be visible to the expert seamstress's eye (like everywhere I had to use the seam ripper - yikes). However, I think the fabric is cute and I think it turned out OK for the first time (and with no help). I hope it will be good enough for my partner.
