I can't imagine being creative without learning how to sew. Being raised in a household where my mom was a stay-at-home mom, sewing lots of her own clothing and our clothing and later on starting to do repairments for clothing shops, it was bound to happen that one day, I wanted to start sewing :-)
Today was that day. I bought an in-step sewing machine, for an ultra beginner like me! After many words of encouragement and advice from my mom, I drove home with my new baby and started to install a sewing place. I got some scrap fabric to learn some stitches and started to just 'invent' something on the go, because I didn't really had a first project in mind. So the first 'thing' I sewed together can pass for a...bag kind-a-thing...yes, I think I can call it that. I added a button and a buttonhole so the bag has a function too: I can actually close and open it, aha,...functionality rocks!
Fiancé was quite impressed by all that sewing together thing talent, so I started looking for a real project to impress him even more ;-). Just to point out that a sewing whim was out of the question! Since I didn't have a pincushion yet, I started looking for how to make one. I still had some stuffing left from the Briar Bunny, so I thought I could give it a try. And I think it turned out well!
Do you like to sew or like to learn it?
