Bust That Pile of Sewing Scraps!
Over the weekend I was working on a Blitzkrieg of sewing projects. I cut out three skirt patterns and managed to sew two in various states of done-ness.
The last one has been cut out but that's about it for now. But, I realize I'm rushing things a bit and need to just chill with the sewing. What better way to relax than with easy scrap busting projects?
Scrap busting projects are a great way to relive the tension of sewing complicated garments (two of my skirts are silk and I'm doing one with French seams, a futzy knit is the third one). I've been sewing long enough to know when I get that itch to have it done fast is exactly the time I need to SLOW down.
So I am off to take a break with an easy scrap project. How about you? Do you rush head first into sewing projects or do you try to take your time and enjoy the ride?
Leave a comment as to your sewing style and you will be entered to win two great books: Simply Sewn by Michiyo Ito and Sew Fun by Deborah Fisher! Both books have easy projects that will bust your scrap pile in no time flat! One winner will be picked Wednesday April 15th!
