I decided that I wanted to learn how to sew. My friend April offered to teach/help me with my first project. I selected a pillow case dress since it seemed fairly simple and straightforward for a first-time seamstress.
It was an eye-opening experience and I learned some things about myself that probably should have been self-evident but were news to me. While I have almost limitless amounts of patience when it comes to dealing with people on the phone, the constant measure, cut, press, piece, sew, cycle got a little tedious after a while. I am not the small detail person that I thought I was, lol.
On the other hand, I loved the extremely satisfying feeling of having created something unique in a matter of hours. April's ready to get started on our next project; I'm not quite there yet, but I'm definitely inclined to give it another go.
What about you? Is there anything crafty that you like to do that you'd recommend to others?
