It took little deliberation before I was determined to do the same. Researching the best sewing machines for beginners and arming myself with enough knowledge to be confident in sewing I was set to start my self-made adventure. It seemed ages since I had got behind the wheel of a sewing machine – learning from my mum as a young girl and doing textiles at school was hardly enough to prepare me for the techniques and procedures of sewing properly.
It was easy enough to jump head first into something like this but I quickly learnt that: ‘patience is a virtue’ and lots of it is needed in sewing. I am very much the type of person that just wants to finish a task and finish it quickly – so not the case with sewing. So to say that I got frustrated quickly was an understatement, but after taking a deep breath and slowing down it was fun. I still rush through some parts of sewing but I am still learning and will have amazing fun doing so.
