Why I sew?

Because I'm envious. I see many talented people who are able to come up with beautiful bags and dresses. All these whiles, I thought sewing is only for selected people who have the 'gift'. I'm not a creative person to begin with, and has no experience whatsoever in sewing. I did try my hands on my mum's sewing machine, which i found quite difficult to handle. I almost gave up cos i just couldn't sew a perfect straight line and my measurements just suck. I just don't have the talent and patience. But, on seeing my friends who sew and the things that they created make me jealous! My mum did tell me that she also never learned from anybody. But she made beautiful things with her sewing machine. She even made me beautiful 'baju kurung' and dresses. Maybe, just maybe, I too can. In searching for inspiration and motivation, I came across Mybotang facebook account and saw all the beautiful creations. Then I saw those bag making books. I just couldn't resist. So I bought myself a book. I'm not sure if I can follow whatever instructions it has inside but who knows right? I'm still waiting for that book. Meanwhile, I'm blogwalking to find any available tutorials to begin with. Can't believe there are so many tutorials one can find on the internet. Now I'm confused as which to start with as there are too many and I'm just so impatient. Silly me. Now, I'm still perfecting my sewing skills. There are many things that I still don't understand and I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my sewing machine. "SIGH'.  I hope I'll not give up.

  1. Don't give up! I find sewing and crafting is a great way for me to relax and recharge. I like to create. I had no clue what I was doing when I first started either. If I taught myself you can too. Of course there are lots of great classes out there too if you want professional help. Good luck!
