More than 10 years ago I got quite heavily into sewing, especially into clothes. But I have to admit, copying a sewing pattern, transferring all the pieces onto the fabric, and all this cutting business before you ever sat down at the sewing maching really wasn’t for me. Granted, once you’ve had your pieces ready the final sewing was fun and went quickly. But I found that I really did not care for the rest. I’ve done some small projects now and then, a bit of altering and mending but that’s about it.
A while back I discovered quilting though and that was a whole different rabbit hole to tumble down. Now I own a new sewing machine better suited to the occasional quilting project and got myself a bit of a fabric stash. And I discovered jelly rolls and layer cakes and charm packs and all those fun precuts. What an adventure.
