My mom first taught me to sew when I was in 7th grade. I made tons of vests (for some reason, I was obsessed with vests!). But, now that I am a wife and mother on a limited budget, I wanted to start it up again (but, not making vests). So, I convinced my dear husband that I needed a sewing maching of my own. This is a quilted tag blanket that I made for my friend Katie's shower soon after I got my very own sewing machine.
