I was having a reflective moment the other day and I started wondering ‘why do I like sewing so much?’ This got me thinking and it isn’t just one thing but a whole lot of things that give me joy when I’m sewing.
I love wandering through fabric stores selecting fabrics and trimmings – I could do this for hours and hours and I feel just like a kid in a candy store. How many times have I picked up beautiful fabric that is totally not appropriate for the outfit I was looking to buy fabric for, but just had to have it reasoning that ‘I will make something with it one day’ and yes, that ‘one day’ usually does come where the fabric is absolutely perfect for the project I am working on.
I love starting with an image in my head and bringing that image to life through all the stages of design to construction and decoration. The sense of satisfaction when the project is completed is just awesome!
I love mixing colors and textures of different fabrics together and creating new and unique outfits, the creative part of sewing is so good for the soul.
I love seeing other people enjoy looking at, wearing or playing with the things I have created with my sewing machine….it is a wonderful feeling to bring joy to others.
So after looking at all the things I like about sewing, I have decided that I don’t ‘Like’ sewing, I ‘LOVE’ sewing and I hope that with my ‘How to Sew Doll Clothes’ online tutorial, I can teach others to sew and they too will grow to love sewing as much as I do!
