Want to boost your creativity? Get a sewing machine! It will be the spark you need to change your life around, find practical solutions to common everyday problems, and even gain some profit. It can’t get any better! The overall cost of most domestic sewing machines is reasonable and so you can easily fit the expense in your budget. As for space limitations, just think of its size. It’s small and portable and so you can use it in any room.
Wondering why should you bother learning how to stitch? There are several good reasons. But let us give you a hint. Using a sewing machine is mind liberating. And what’s best than freeing your mind from the daily obligations, complications at work, or the children’s voices? And that’s not all! Think of the satisfaction your own creations will offer you. And keep in mind that this is not time wasted, but rather time well spent. Let us show you the reasons why.
Not enough money for new garments? Repair the old ones
Cluttered closets with old garments too small to fit? It happens to the best families. Who doesn’t keep stashed clothing in anticipation of the day the extra pounds will finally go away. No need to suffer or keep clothes occupying valuable space in the closet. Time to modify them. You can add different fabrics to enlarge and modernize them, copy ideas from the latest trends you find in magazines or online, add pockets and buttons, and make an impression to your friends.
Make a great gift to friends and family
Speaking of friends! What could make a greatest gift to your best friend other than a hot red shirt or dress made by you? Clothes but also any other fabric creation make excellent gifts to both relatives and friends. How about sewing a baseball shirt or preparing gloves for your want-to-be-a-baseball-player son? As he is looking for the best baseball bats online, you will have the rest of his gear ready to wear in no time. And he will love both his new gear and your support.
You become creative
How often do you go woh in front of shop windows or at the sight of Yves Saint Laurent dresses in magazines, but know that you could never afford them? Time to turn the page. All you need is fabric and thread. And voila! You will have the garments you always dreamed about but never could have gotten them without your home sewing machine. But you can also sew pillow cases and sheets, bed covers, cushion cases, table clothes – anything with fabric. The sky is the limit!
Torn pants? You get to fix them
Time to stop tossing torn clothes, sheets or anything else made of fabric in the house. You can stitch the torn part or even complement it with a different colored thread to alter its looks. No more trying to find a seamstress to fix the problem.
Using a sewing machine at home will also save you tons of money from seamstresses, buying new clothes and stuff for the house, and throwing torn garments away.
And if all goes well, you can start your own home-based business as well. You can start sewing for friends and take it from there. There is no better advertisement than word-of-mouth recommendations.
And you get to use time wisely too.
Worry about your inexperience? Give it time! Nobody learns overnight. But let me close with a quote by Scott Adams:
“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”
Right to the point, don’t you agree?
