Lately, whilst chatting with a dear sewing friend, I asked if she’d done any sewing, adding I hadn’t, but was planning several things.
She detailed some of her thought processes for a new piece of fabric, and I told her about some of my design thoughts for two projects.
Then I asked, rhetorically, if we were procrastinating, or simply in the development stages of our projects, remembering the steps I’d already gone through.
One process started out as a simple bag. Then I realised a full lining was necessary. Over the weekend I realised that a handle would be an awfully handy thing to have, and added that to the overall design concept.
Meanwhile, scrap fabric had been located and the seam ripper separated what was backing on the previous project, and will become the lining for both projects.
What do you think, Dear Readers? Is this procrastination? Or development as part of the overall design process?
(… if this sounds suspiciously like it could also apply to some fancy-smancy car or architectural design, doesn’t that say something about what we sewing peeps are really doing… 🤓 )
