Sewing Resolutions and How to Achieve Them!
The new year always ushers in the urge to make changes, and we're keen to challenge ourselves again this year with some new resolutions! Take a peek below to see what sort of thing you could challenge yourself to tackle in your sewing, and how to achieve your goals.
New Year Sewing Resolutions and How to Achieve Them
Challenge your skills
For those who have been sewing for a little while and want to advance their skills, why not challenge yourself to try a project which scares you a little? For intermediate sewists this could be something like a pair of tailored trousers or activewear, and for more advanced stitchers a pair of jeans or a coat.
And here's a few to advance your skills if you're more experienced:
Be more eco-friendly
Use up your stash
Whether it's just getting too large or you'd like to be more mindful of your resources, using up your stash is a great resolution that a lot of us choose to try and stick to. With a wealth of fabric already at your fingertips, it will push you to get creative with what you've got. Just set yourself a few rules like only buying necessary essentials to finish a project such as haberdashery and plain fabrics to match or line. It's amazing what you can do with all that fabric, and just think of all the handmade gifts you'll be able to make too!
