Designing vs. Sewing
With that said even the most passionate sewers, I am sure, must at times feel the discouragement that sewing can bring. Just one wrong stitch can have you taking an entire garment apart and starting from scratch...if you want it to look perfect. Which is why, just for a little bit I'd lost my sewing mojo. Not that I stopped sewing at all, don't have time for that, but my desire did wane a tad bit. It just seemed as though while I loved the concept of everything that I was making the reality just was not living up to the "what could be". That can be so infuriating! But when you finish a garment and it looks even better than what you'd imagined it all feels worth it. So while I will always have new designs running through my mind, I am sure that from time to time my sewing "mojo" will ebb, and I will look forward to the day that I can hire someone to sew for me, I will never stop sewing. Because nothing feels better than creating the perfect garment with your own two hands!
