Do you use your ironing board to press and pin fabric together in your sewing projects? Isn’t it irritating when those pins catch the soft cover of the ironing board? Check out my one-minute video for the remedy to this very pressing problem!
Life sometimes has a way of preventing the happy swirl of creativity in my head from turning into something real, be it a song or a piece of art. The swirl seems to break up into tinier and tinier bits until it’s just dust. But it’s also the signal that I have too much on my plate, emotionally and otherwise, and that it’s time to clear it away and seek some fresh inspiration.
Some months ago I was given a copy of The Art Of Fabric Collage by Rosemary Eichorn http://www.tauntonstore.com/the-art-of-fabric-collage-rosemary-eichorn-070703.html as a gift and flipped through, dismissing this type of fabric art as being far beyond any sewing ability that I might have. But, there is some amazing art in there, and so I have lately been again flipping through with more of a sense of adventure; I’d love to do this!!
Another terrific inspiration is the crazy beautiful wearable art offered by Pat Berryhill of Magpie Dreams http://www.magpiedreams.net/apparel.html like the gorgeous piece here:
What do you do when life intrudes and hampers your creative sense?
