Spontaneous sewing


I started snipping and sewing and I didn’t stop. I didn’t want to use a pattern or make something to sell or make something that needed to be anything other than a simple expression of what I was feeling right at that moment. I made a little guy and I love him (or her?) so much. I want to do more sewing like this. All of it is hand sewn and some of it is already coming apart at the seams but all of it makes me feel completely happy… and creatively satiated for a short time in this very long summer. Here’s to spontaneous sewing!

    So inspiring! I think you have invented a new type of sewing, being intentional about not making something to sell or something from a pattern. Such a great end result! Keep it up!

    He’s lovely! And you’re on to something: how often do I not sit down with the intention of Making Something Useful, or Making Blog Content. No pressure! Beauty is its own reward, and so Is creativity! 🙂

    He’s ace! Love how you’ve attached his shoulders with buttons. I agree – free-form sewing rocks.

    I miss the days when I used to just ‘wing it’. I remember doing that sort of thing when I was a kid. I should get back into this sort of crafting.
