A stress reliever for me, like most of us makers is sewing. Sometimes though I find myself getting stressed out by it particularly when I'm sewing clothing. When that happens I go to projects like pillowcovers or a pattern I've got all the kinks worked out in and could sew in my sleep like my favorite leggings pattern. I've seen other bloggers call these, palate cleansers. For me it's anything really that calls for no fitting required! While mindlessly scrolling Instagram like one does I came across my next stress relief project or shall I say palate cleanser, The Butcher Bag. A simple fold-over style convertible clutch/crossbody.
It's nice to go back to the basics, especially after a sewing fail or a garment that requires complicated things like buttons or zippers. I heart those patterns that you can sew up in a few hours and they will play nice with other items in your closet. I have one of those patterns to share with you today. This top is just about as easy to make as it is to put on.
Hello there! I'm back again with a make I've had completed for some time now. I have a million and one excuses for my absence. The main two being 1. It's been hot as hell out and I've not been able to pry myself out of the air conditioned house to do much of anything outside and 2. I've been blog depressed. The desire for perfection wears on a person and it ends up taking the fun out of everything. I spend more time than I want publishing a post. I'm taking my time back and putting the fun back into this hobby by keeping it short and sweet from now on.
