Are you like this? While at work, I often think about sewing—what I’d like to make, how I’d make it, what fabrics I might need to purchase(!), etc. But by the time I get home, I’m exhausted, and I often don’t have the gumption to cut out whatever it is I’d been thinking about during the day.
So, I’m trying something new to me—and this is something I know I’ve read about on other blogs, so it is hardly original. This is what I’m trying: On Sunday, I cut out eight items—two casual jackets, four shells, and two pairs of pants. I put each cut and marked item in its own zip lock baggie, along with (if needed) cut interfacing and elastic. My hope is that having these kits will help me over the I’m-just-too-tired hump that I’ve been facing after work—because I really do enjoy sewing once I start, but I’m not a fan of cutting things out. We’ll see!
What do you do? Do you have any tricks to keep your sewing on track?
Happy sewing! ~ Peggy
