I have said it before, sewing is not easy. Ah but here’s the thing. Every time I do a project I get a little faster, a little less frustrated, and a little teeny bit better. The more I think about it, the more it makes sense. I’m bad because I’ve barely done anything! How many scrapbook layouts did I make before I started teaching classes? 100? 300? It was a lot, and I should expect no less from a different craft. (note to self: DUH!)
Just like mastering any art – gardening, cooking, baking, scrapbooking, or SEWING – to name a few – practice brings better skills and better skills brings good things.
So, my goal is to sew at least five times a week. A partial project, simple project, repair, or just practicing with a scrap. I will practice.
Today I made an 18″ pillow case, complete with a fold-over 3 button closure. I used 3 different stitches, layered on fabric and ribbon, and I love how it turned out. It was supposed to be a housewarming gift for my mom, but I don’t know… I do love it…
Tomorrow will = paper craft day and yes, I will share results!)
Until then, whatever you’re creating I hope you have fun and enjoy the process.
