Sewing has truly changed my life. When I started sewing 12 years ago, I was not very good at it. I became frustrated easily and wanted to give up. I was also learning on my own and I kept trying to make things that were way out of my sewing skill level, which lead to even more frustration. But I kept practicing. My friends and family all have the tote bags, aprons, and handbags that are signs my persistence.
Now, I have the special opportunity to share my love of sewing with people of all ages. To some, making pillowcases may seem too easy but if you have never sewn a thing in your life and then YOU make a pillowcase, it truly is an exhilarating experience. Making a simple pillowcase for yourself, a loved one, or for a child you don’t know is a true gift.
I teach beginners how to sew pillowcases because something so easy as sewing a pillowcase builds confidence and provides a level of great satisfaction. It also makes you want to keep sewing more and more pillowcases! I think it is important to share our gift of sewing with others. If making a pillowcase makes you smile, just think of the smile on the person you give the pillowcase too!
One pillowcase = two Smiles, one for you and one for the person you give it too 😃
