The lessons you can learn from your sewing mistakes can be applied to many areas of life. If you know how to sew, you'll recognize these ten lessons. If you don't, we're happy to share them with you.
Make the garment fit you.
Buy extra fabric. Better to have a little extra than to fall short.
"No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse." Matthew 9:16Always preshrink your fabric.
Pants can become shorts if you're not careful. Measure before you cut and then measure again.
Don't pull your hair out. Pull your seam out. You can fix it and move on or start over.
The outside may look complete, but unfinished seams will unravel in time.
Making deliberate and well-thought-out decisions will give you the best end results.
Sometimes simple is best.
Get rid of loose threads. They only distract you.
Ignore the imperfections, you love it because you made it.
