Craftiness and Happiness
A new craft or DIY project can make for some of the most relaxing evenings and weekends. So after a busy August of weddings and summer gatherings, I thought it would be quite delightful to take a weekend off and try out some sewing basics! Back in my elementary days I was not much for sports or girl guides, and as a result, my mother enrolled me in sewing class. I took to it right away and found myself a fun new hobby. I made my own clothes, handbags and PJs. This skill gave me a great sense of creative independence as a kid. I was stylin’ my own clothes to school and feeling confident! (Even when they may have resembled my mothers curtains!)
So last weekend I took on the challenge of relearning the craft of sewing. My first step, an apron! I figured well, I definitely am in need of one, and how hard can the “basic apron pattern” be. I then headed off to Fabricville and picked out some great floral fabric and the simplest pattern I could find. The pattern’s name was “Simplicity”
It can be a lot of fun learning and practicing a new craft. I completely forgot how challenging yourself with a new project can quickly take the worries of your week away! So, whatever crafty hobby you take up next, I hope you enjoy yourself as much as I did and share your creative project with us. We love hearing your original stories and experiences!
Happy crafting everyone!
