Yesterday I finished putting together these skirts and dress.
They are made out of other skirts that I had taken apart. The dress was just a plane green dress that I ‘braided in’ and added details to..
I never thought I could sew — but a couple of days ago when I was alone at my friend’s house and I was feeling anxious and hurt and did not wanted to see anybody – I sad down in front of my friend’s sewing machine and ‘forced’ myself to start.
I broke at least 4 needles. And I had to go out and smoke .. quite a bit more than usual.. to not
get frustrated with the machine that I not always could go to do what i wanted.. But slowly I started getting a hang of it.
I did not end up leaving the sewing room till yesterday .
I was so stoked when I saw what my little imagination and hands had created 🙂
I was so excited that I ended up rushing home — running to my neighbour in my little trailer park – my good friend Honalee – and I said:
“Honalee! Will you like to be my model tomorrow? lets get wild, I will bring my clothes. Lets take some photos together!”
It was quite simple — let me say I am a very beginner at sewing.
But if you want to know more – I can tell you how I did it.
… We can create so much more than we think we can – if we just let our imagination run free and wild 🙂🙂 YAY!!
