Scissor Blunder

This week in my sewing journey I learned that making mistakes during the creative process can lead to inspiration. I was cutting my fabric while slightly distracted when I cut the front facing piece in half. The novice mistake gave me a lace induced idea. So it was another trip to my local craft shop for lace and creative inspo. I now look at that mistake as an opportunity to make my garment more dimensional.  I hope you are finding your creative outlet.

Snowed In Sewing 

Here on the Northeast coast we were hit with blizzard Jonas. Without consideration it ruined my museum wandering plans. Though I was very glad I had plenty of time to sew. As I mentioned in my previous post I have very little sewing technical skills. I got aquented  with my Brother XL2230 sewing machine.Needless  to say after frustration comes the stitching rainbow. After rereading directions and watching YouTube tutorials I was able to thread the sewing machine,practice stitching and understand a pattern. So far I’ve learned patience is the biggest virtue needed for this craft. I hope to have a finished garment soon. Patience is a virtue!!!

Sewing into my Ancestry 

I am continuing the theme of trying something new with sewing. The talent of sewing has run in my family starting with my maternal grandmother. She was a professional seamstress in NYC. Although I never met her I always believed the love of the fashion industry was passed down to me. I don’t have much experience in sewing so this will be a challenge for me. I hope you enjoy following my sewing journey and get inspired to create something.
