What are your sewing insecurities??
Me, I am very insecure about things in general, and I think I always have been. What I say (or not say), how I look, what I do. I never fit in, I always felt awkward. I think as I get older, certain things that I am insecure about bother me less and less. Maybe I am just too tired of caring too much, or maybe I am too busy with other things to bother.
As far as sewing goes, I am insecure about garment sewing, and about quilting, in that order. I feel like I have only dipped my foot in with both, and also that my cutting-corners-to-get-it-finished qualities may not be the best idea
sometimes all the time.
I am insecure about having ‘conversations’ with big bloggers…recently I did, with a few that I had pretty much idolized. I told myself, “Hey self, they’re just regular people,” but well, I just feel awkward. Like someone just caught me carrying a handbag that I made myself, but the strap broke (which will be a true story soon, because today I noticed, with a bag that I made last year, that I hadn’t sewn the strap in securely and it was coming halfway out! lol!).
So anyway, I just wanted to share with you, because some days I feel a little less than fearless. But that doesn’t stop me from tackling a sewing project, and it shouldn’t stop you either. Even if you have just started sewing, work on as many projects as you can. Each one will teach you a new thing.
Until tomorrow…I will leave you with a photo of my new bag tutorial that I’ll be posting. I just need to photograph one more set of steps (darn you 2am approaching! I just needed another hour! lol).
