So I know No. 12 was learn to knit, but I’m thinking I need to tackle my fear of sewing first. I bought Lotta Jansdotter’s Handmade Living, and it got me thinking: You know what? I can make my own damn curtains.
But I have much to learn, friends.
I have a confession to make. I can’t believe I’m writing this, but when a button falls off my peacoat or the tear in my snowboarding pants reopens, husband comes to the rescue with the needle and thread. (He even carries a pocket sewing kit when he travels!)
Perhaps my domesticity issues began in seventh-grade sewing >
I’m ashamed to say I never finished that pillow and I have not touched a sewing machine since.
