This week I embarked on a whole new chapter in creativity.
I took on the challenge of making clothes for my daughter’s Barbie. I’d never thought I’d have the patience for sewing on such a small scale. Now I see that this experiment could lead to a lot of time spent at my beloved avocado green vintage Kenmore.
As it turns out, turning your creativity to small sewing projects has its benefits.
- No trips to the fabric store until I run out of fabric in 2023
- No pricked fingers with endless pinning — cut’n’sew!
- No fussy hems
- Success in an hour or less
The best part if I throw myself into this new craft? The possibility of fulfilling my dream of one day actually designing clothes — a project I could conceivably start *and* finish. There’s also finding my fortune on Etsy like my friends Hilltop Hausfrau and Red Pear Creative … and, most importantly, delivering all the joy my daughter’s little heart can handle
Which leads me to the real reason creativity, on any scale, is so important.
It’s for sharing.
