When wanting – or needing – to sew, to create something new, how do you start the process?
- Do you just think of something out of the clear blue and go for it?
- Do you see something online or in a magazine that gets the juices flowing?
- Or, do you know you simply want to sew for the stress reliever, so you find yourself a pattern and fabric, then start?
At different times, in different moods, I do all three.
Today, for example, I want to create a robe and coordinating pajamas for an 18 inch doll. Last night I went into my walk-in closet (aka back bedroom) and found the robe’s fabric I bought a while back, knowing someday I’d get around to it. I dug through my tubs of trims and found a couple of pieces that may work – depending on the design I end up cutting out.
Now I’m off to design a pattern if one in my stash doesn’t match my vision!
Happy Sewing Saturday everyone!
