...that make sewing exciting.
I made covered buttons for my Beignet skirt in needlecord. For some reason, I've never made covered buttons before, but I absolutely LOVE these. They're so easy and quick to put together too. I've used the same fabric for inside the pockets:
I also love the process of putting the pockets into this skirt, and seeing it come together. I do love sewing, but find that even on projects that I enjoy, I still find little lulls where I don't feel motivated to get the sewing machine out. It's moments like seeing the pockets, or making covered buttons that provide a little bit of excitement to push the project on.
I'm not sure I can get this skirt finished for my self-imposed deadline. It's on its way to being made, but I don't want to push so hard to get it done that I'm not enjoying the process. It seems to be a fine line to tread between being motivated and pushing too hard to meet deadlines. On the whole, the goals I've set myself have been really helpful and most importantly, achievable. Maybe sometimes it's just nice to slack off a bit and break your own rules?
