I don't do a lot of sewing for other people, but this year I've done more than ever before. My sewing machine is also an embroidery machine (thanks, Mom, for foreseeing how much I would love sewing before I knew I would!), and sometimes I do embroidery for other people too.
And I hate it. Well, I sort of hate it. I love being able to save my friends money by monogramming their bags or other fun things. I love sewing quilted table toppers for friends. But I get SO NERVOUS in the process!
When I'm making something for me, or even to give as a gift to someone else, I don't worry about how it's going to turn it. It's almost always fine. When I'm sewing for someone else, all I see are the millions of imperfections in what I'm making!
How do people who have ETSY shops do it? I recently won the world's cutest apron from Just Sew Sassy (picture coming soon!) and I swear it's absolutely perfect. As in, I looked for stitches that weren't totally straight and there aren't any. Incredible.
Today was a snow day in Cincinnati. I worked from home, but let's face it, can you really call working in your PJs work?? Yes, people who live where you actually get large amounts of snow, I know that this amount of snow is pathetic - but it's a lot around here. Hope you're staying warm, wherever you are!
