What's your sewing philosophy?
Replies are closed for this discussion.
My new mantra for sewing is "yes - you can do it". So many times I have looked at patterns/fabric and thought that my sewing skills "weren't up to the task", so I haven't bothered. I now look at things in a different light - if it looks complicated, do a muslin first - nothing to loose there. More times than not I have discovered that "I could do it".
It doesn't matter if the process takes longer, just enjoy it. New skills are learnt, and a real sense of achievement at the end.
my philosophy is Do it because I'm worth it! Having four boys and working full time with children I know there has to be space for just me. And yes I am worth the effort, I aim to make clothes that are suitabel for my lifestyle but make me feel good. The whole process even witha few ups and downs means I have had time to be creative, have a end product and a little skip in my step that comes from inner joy!
