You got to make the sewing last
(with apologies to Simon & Garfunkel)
Yes, somehow it all became a terrific rush: I wanted results RIGHT AWAY, and as it's a simple project it wasn't too bad, but could have been a lot better. I'm not quite sure why this was, apart from not being a very patient person, and it makes me quite concerned as to starting 'proper' projects.
I need to somehow relax and take each step one at a time, to make things with care rather than thinking 'that will do'. The odd thing was, that as I was tearing towards the finish line of the purse, I suddenly minded how it looked, that it turned out right.
Does anyone have any tips for calm, successful sewing?
On the up side, the next day I did make a Sorbetto muslin (albeit pinned rather than stiched). Yes, it's meant to be an easy beginner project, but inspired by Karen's OWOP triumph, I hope to make a few of them, and so wanted to get things right.
Swings and roundabouts, people. Swings and roundabouts.
In other news, I have at last turned the heel of the second Tiptoe sock.
