You may be aware of a tradition popular at the beginning of each year where people set out to attain new goals—or resolutions, if you will—for themselves. I’ve never been a big advocate of this tradition because I don’t believe in only setting goals for yourself one time a year.
However, after my new found discovery of sewing, I have set a new monthly goal for myself: make (sew) something new each month.
I’ve been a long time follower of merricksart.com and refashionista.net but I never thought I could fashion some of their thrift store finds and hand-me-downs as well as they do. But again, after trying my hand at sewing recently and discovering it’s not that hard, I’m going to put faith in myself and give them a go!
My only “rules” of attaining my goal each month are to (1) either sew something totally new (i.e. from pattern or free hand if I get really good), or (2)refashion an item into something new to me. I already have a pile I’ve been saving of Carl’s old button-ups and such so I’m excited to try my hand at refashioning as well. Still trying to decide on what my piece for February’s goal shall be. Hmm…
