I’ve given up thinking I can focus mostly on my knitting & spinning as my main hobbies. Other ones keep sidetracking me.
On a recent trip to the bookstore, I made an unexpected purchase:
Sewing? I haven’t sat down at a sewing machine in over 10-15 years when I made a couple of pillows. I took sewing in home ec but never liked sewing – but I never looked beyond making clothes. I have no desire to make clothes. But bags or at least the lining for any knitting bags I make do interest me. There are some knitted or crocheted bag patterns I’ve not made yet because I was avoiding that whole sewing thing …
So, why the interest now? I have no idea. But I really like this book. It’s not a book of patterns -it a book of projects, ideas that can lead to your own bag design.
Wanna know how motivated I am? I went to a fabric (quilt) store. Very intimidating. I know nothing about buying fabric, but I think I found some nice fabric for a couple of bag projects in the book.
See? (why deviate from favorite colors )
I’ll keep you updated on my progress – success or not!
