Welcome to Design-land Everyone!
Anyone who knows me – knows I live and breathe fabric. I LOVE fabric and textiles, anything FIBER! Have since I was a kid! And I love designing and making clothes for myself!
Truth be told, sitting at the machine is kinda ZEN for me! And, I have heard over and over again – “I wish I could do that!”
Well, you can!
Imagine the pure satisfaction of crafting your own clothing designs. Picture yourself selecting fabrics that light up your spirit, plotting out patterns like an artist sketching a new masterpiece, and having that exhilarating sense of accomplishment as your creative vision comes to life right before your very eyes!
OK, it’s not quite THAT “Cinderella-esque,” but it’s pretty cool!
As the anticipation builds for “The ART of Patternmaking,” let’s pause and revel in the true essence of what this journey represents.
- It’s meditative!
- It’s fulfilling!
- And it’s an exciting outlet for your creativity!
Nothing beats the feeling you’ll get as friends and family shower you with compliments, asking, “Where did you get that fabulous outfit?”
And your reply?
“I designed it myself!”
(WARNING: Be prepared for the inevitable “Can you make me one?”)
Think about the skills you’ll gain along this journey – precision, patience, design insight, and a deep understanding of form and function. Did I mention patience? M’kay, just checkin’.
I don’t mean to sound “woo-woo,” but each day, each stitch, is an opportunity for personal and artistic growth.
So, here’s a thought to ponder:
What’s one creative clothing project that feels a bit scary, but incredibly exciting? How could diving into this project (and completing it!!) expand your horizons?
