Happy Friday everybody, and Happy Veterans Day to all of you that have served!! Thank you! Today I wanted to talk about the dreaded sewing rut! We've all been there, and some of us are there now (slowly raises hand lol). It sucks not being inspired, tired, bored, overwhelmed, frustrated, and just simply...busy. Before I throw patterns in your face, let me give 3 suggestions to try to get that sewjo back.
When starting back, its important to....
- Start small. I recommend two to three pieces, four max. Last thing you want to do is start a 2-3 day project and get overwhelmed. Keep it simple.
- Sew with a friend or watch a tutorial on YouTube. This is awesome because you know at the end of the video, you'll have a new finished project.
- Get out and go shopping. Seeing beautiful fabrics and trims, can do wonders for sparking your inspiration. While you're out, check out these QUICK, and EASY patterns to get back sewing....
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a safe and relaxing 3 day weekend. If you are currently in a sewing rut, know that you are not alone, and I hope this post helps get you back sewing again soon!
