I keep going down to my sewing room and sitting in a chair staring at all I’ve accumulated to create with, and I can’t get started. I look at Pinterest, and I save pins, but nothing is sparking “it”. Nothing appeals to me. I look at the stuff I have already created and all I see are flaws. I don’t enjoy sewing clothes, because I don’t like my size, and I can’t seem to figure out what size to use in patterns. My bags and totes don’t seem good enough to sell — everyone else’s things are perfect, their topstitching is gorgeous, their fabric is ironed flat, and their shapes are smooth and crisp, their binding is beautiful, and their seams have no buckles or puckers. I can point out every mistake I’ve made.
I feel a little lost.
