My First Sewing Project

I got my sewing machine last week and I finally made something today. I piddled around with a few scraps of fabric before but this is my first finished project. I made a burp cloth out of a flannel receiving blanket and a towel. I got both items at Goodwill for 50 cents each. I can probably get another 3 or 4 burp cloths from the fabric. I didn't use a pattern, I just cut out a rectangle and straight stitched the pieces together with the wrong sides facing out. I trimmed my seam allowance and corners and then I turned it right side out. Then I did a zig-zag stitch all the way around and a straight stitch across the middle so it would fold nicely. I don't think I did too bad.
