I sew too! :) I got a sewing machine a year ago for my birthday and have been at it ever since. I want to do a quilt, but have no time right now. I promised myself I'd make a small one for each of my nieces and nephews though... but they are non existent just now so... :P
I have however, sewn my sister pillow cases, I've done tea wallets, Kleenex covers, hemmed pants and sewed ripped jeans, Halloween costumes... It's fun but it get's tiring. Especially when you don't have a pattern and you're just improvising, so you need to retouch everything constantly.
I sell some sewn stuff on etsy so if anyone wants to check it out, here is the link. (I am still in the process of adding items) :) Welcome by 1OfAKindStuff on Etsy
This was last years' Halloween costume (I was a traditional polish doll). Except for the blouse (which was my school uniform) I sewed everything from scratch without a pattern, because everything I found was expensive and not even what I wanted. Patterns can be pricey!
