Since I got my sewing machine the other week I have got so many ideas and projects in my mind and sketchbook I would like to make over the next weeks.
I have always loved patterns in all their forms and I have especially always been very much fond of triangles. You see them all over the blog-world like on Mette's great blog or in Malin's shop.

Inspired by them I tried this weekend to sew my very first triangle pillow case. It was quiet tricky at some points but I am happy with the result and I am glad that I tried to make it.
It is such a great feeling to hold something in your hands made by you.

Have you tried something out lately you always wanted to do?

Your pillow case looks amazing. Great job!

wow, ist super geworden! ich wuerde gern eine richtige quilt-tagesdecke fuers bett machen aber kann mich nicht so recht entscheiden (dreiecke - quadrate - sechsecke oder 3d-wuerfel?).
vielleicht sollte ich mal mit etwas handlicherem anfangen, ein kissen waere doch eine gute idee!

Your new pillow looks fantastic! I love the contrast between all the triangles and the circles on the beige fabric.

Wow - congratulations. Looks like the lamp was keeping a close eye on what the sewing machine was doing. Great shadows.

Sieht echt toll aus. Ich würde auch so gerne nähen können, aber mir fehlt die Geduld...Meine Mum kann aber sehr gut nähen und seit einigen Jahren macht sie nur noch Patchworkarbeiten. Da ist es gar nicht so schlimm, dass ich es nicht kann - ich wünsch mir einfach was von ihr ;)
Ich kann dir auf jeden Fall mal die Bücher von "Tone Finnanger" empfehlen. Die hat tolle Ideen (z.B. http://www.amazon.de/Sew-Pretty-Homestyle-Irresistible-Projects/dp/0715327496/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&s=books-intl-de&qid=1284495398&sr=8-13)

Weiter viel Erfolg beim Nähen
