hooray! clean craft areas always make you more motivated!!
I'm in the middle of deciding what I can definitely make and what I need to pick up Cheesy
Gotta clean the place and organise everything first though!!
Our interests overlap quite a lot Cheesy

I wish I could sew well, I have to try and motivate myself to set aside time to practise on the machie though! I'm scared of wasting expensive material though by messing stuff up!!
How do you guys motivate yourselves? Smiley

It is hard to make myself use the sewing machine, I am very much intimidated by it. The damn thing is smarter than me and it knows it. Smiley I did my first sewing machine project for my daughter for Christmas, and it turned out great. for me motivation is just an idea that has to be completed. Once they get in there I have to at least try to make the or it keeps nagging at me. Swaps have really helped me with crafting outside the box.

I had a sewing machine class way back in elementary school that taught me how to sew (how to thread the sewing machine and we made a drawstring bag) Thanks to that I moved on to doing other things. I feel like you could do it. Smiley Little practice and some of the coolest boys in my class even were little Martha Stewerts.


My motivation is more of I force myself to go sit at the machine, things start going and before I know it I am enjoying myself.

I find sewing very enjoyable when my instructions make sense - every now and then I get a pattern and there will be something on it I don't understand and I'm stuck googling. Even on the supposedly quick and easy patterns. I still don't know how to do collars right... zippers have tons of instructions all over, but how to get a nicely finished collar? not so much.

hmm, i have been checking all the stuff my partner has received in other swaps - She has received some amazing stuffs. I can't make her ____ since she has already received 2 other style versions. I don't think she needs another ____. I saw ____ on her pinterest, and I am sure I can do a better job than the one pictured, so that may be a definite idea. I need to come up with some more possibilities.
