So many women my age do not know how to sew. I do not understand why this is. If you can’t sew what do you do with faulty seams in garments? What do you do if your button falls off or you rip a hole in your favorite dress? Mending is not the only useful thing for sewing. Behold my 10 reasons why you should learn to sew:
- Mending/repairing clothing
- Altering clothing
- Gifts for loved ones
- Creative expression
- Loads of fun!
- Diy any garment, bag, household item, decor, and any other cloth thing you don’t have the money to purchase
- Diy toys, clothes, bibs, and accessories for children
- Reduce, reuse, and upcycle
- Save money
It is just logical! Women have rights and work now; but that’s no reason to ignore our “jobs” as the foundation of a household! I would be lost without this simple skill.
