Sewing: An Old Hobby

Back in the day I used to sew.  All the time!!!  Seriously!!!  In high school I used to do my best to sew myself a new outfit to wear for every Aloha Friday!!!  I would stay up until the wee hours of the morning cutting out patterns, cutting out my fabric and sewing myself a new Hawaiian print romper or dress.  I used to sew outfits for my sisters and my friends for their birthdays or sometimes “just because.”  I’ve sewn a few prom dresses too.  One time I had to stay up all night to sew a prom dress for a last minute prom!!!  I used to even tweak patterns and create my own dress/outfits from mixing and matching patterns.  I’ve sewn tote bags and other fun things too!!!

Unfortunately, I no longer sew as much.  In fact, now I hardly ever sew.  I just don’t have time to do it.  Once I started going to college the time for sewing dwindled.  Instead I was studying, working, traveling and living it up in my college years.  Once I graduated college, work and the “real” world took over.  I found myself being too busy or too tired to sew.  I still have my sewing machine and still sew from time to time.  One day I may get back to it on a more regular basis, but for now my focuses are my photography and my business.  I do have a mini-sewing project for my business…I just have to find time to actually sit down and do it!!!  Hopefully I get it done sooner rather than later!!!  Haha!!!

Happy Sewing!!!

When do you sew? You should have taken pictures of your old work.
