Do you ever get excited about sewing something and when your done, it turns out to be such a disappointment? Not that the pattern was a disappointment, but your sewing was not up to par or your choice of fabrics wasn't quite right, etc. I have a box of disappointments. I'm not quite sure why I keep them, but I do. Do you keep your not so worthy projects or do you toss them?
I suggest you stash them for a bit, bring them out later and take another look.
You may find, they weren't so bad after all.
I bought this Favorite Things pattern years ago with the intention of making a few as gifts for my younger nieces.
Before making them as gifts, I decided to practice on myself.
I even took the time to add a bit of embroidery.
It has tons of pockets for cash or credit cards.
You can add a zippered pocket, a pocket with a flap or just pockets on both ends.
I opted for the quick and easy pockets on each end.
I was so disappointed in my sewing skills, I didn't even finish sewing the strap closure or the button on.
Funny, as I take a second look, it's a little wonky, not perfect, but....
it's really not that bad!
Sometimes I think we are so hard on ourselves if it's not perfect.
When really... good enough is, by definition, good enough.
Have a great day!
