Like a have written before I want to use the next year to improve myself. One of the things I want to do is to become a better seamstress. My mind is alwas working on some ideas of what I want to make. When I am walking, cooking, cleaning, name it my mind is going round and round about some design or idea.
In sewing like other things, like cooking and knitting, I like recipies okay but I love to change them with my little ideas and making them my own. I always have to change something. I also like to make up my own designs but it is hard for me because I am not mych of a drawer. I draw like a six-year-old (and write as well).
So what can I do about it? I can practice! I am going to watch videos on Youtube on drawing and skeching and then practice. It will be the first thing I focus on.
This is an idea I came up with today. On Friday we have a school trip with the kindergarden and we need a picnic blanket. I want it to be waterproof so I bought a 'leisure sheet' at the 100 yen store. But that is so boring so I am going to use tomorrow to turn it into a beautiful, waterproof, quilt to use for picnics :)
As you can see the sketch is not that great even if it does what it has to do but it would be more fun to be able to make it mire detailed and beautiful :)
I will share some pictures when I make better sketches :)
