What materials did you use? 100% cotton upholstery fabrics.

What are you most proud of? Gosh where do I start? Using a rotary cutter, seam gauge, and basically all of the tools (as well as winding my machine's bobbin) for the FIRST TIME ever! I know this project is probably shamefully easy for anyone who's sewn a while, but as a first timer I'm very proud! Also learning new skills is always gratifying. Diana rocks.

i can't believe this is your first sewing machine project :) i really like the colors and design of the fabric, and they are a great contrast with your adorable dog.
