I recently started sewing. I think it was the end of June 2014. I must say it has been a very rewarding experience for me. I am learning new things about myself and realizing that I am more creative than I thought. I haven’t felt this way about anything since I wrote my book Deception Disguised as Love http://www.amazon.com/Deception-Disguised-Love-LeJanaro-Barnes-ebook/dp/B00MAUOBR6/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1407976514&sr=1-1&keywords=deception+disguised+as+love
One night I was on Facebook and I went to the mimigstyle.com fan page just to look at her style of fashion and I realized that she was sewing most of her clothes, she had a blog, and a YouTube channel. I went to her YouTube channel that night and watch a couple of her sewing tutorials and I was hooked. I sent a text message to my sister and my mother letting them know that I wanted to start sewing.
Now let me explain something… My first experience with sewing was my senior year in high school when I had to take home economics. I was supposed to make a pair of shorts with pockets and it was a disaster! I wish I had a picture for you but the picture in my head is horrifying enough.
Ok back to the present! My mom told me she would give me everything I needed to start sewing, so I went home that weekend and she did just that. She gave me a sewing machine and a sewing box with all of the beginner tools. We even went to Hancock fabrics to show me how to pick out fabric. I felt like a kid in a candy store! Now I can say that I am completely hooked and if I could I would spend every single day sewing!
It is very gratifying when I post my sewing projects on Facebook and Instagram and I get messages in my inbox of people asking me to sew things for them. I’m not sewing for other people but I know that in the future this could be an option for me. Sooooo here I go restarting my blog with new topics and hopefully I will keep it up. I will hopefully in the future take more professional looking picture but for now, I will share what I have so far. Thank you for all of the love and support! I hope you guys enjoy!
