I've kind of been in a sewing funk this last week or so. Normally, I get excited about sewing projects that produce something functional (you've probably all picked up on this with the number of bags I make). This week however, I have not wanted to make anything that is useful or "makes sense" to me. This is completely out of character. The themes to the things I am inclined to make are 1. function and 2. useful. It's not very often that I have made something just because it's cute. However, I always try to combine the cuteness factor into something that is functional and useful. Today, I'm climbing out of that self-imposed box of "if I can't use it, I don't want to waste my time making it" attitude. I think it all started with an email I sent to Alpa, suggesting some sewing projects for her to try. The power of suggestion must be real, because I took my own advice!
"Bella" is made of totally thrifted materials (which you know totally floats my boat) except for the thread. The pattern is from this book.
So I pose a question for you, what kind of crafter are you? Do you create for function, or for cuteness or both?
