I don’t know how to sew, and this may also translate into “hating sewing” projects. I do know how to do some quick stitches by hand. The stitches are not very pretty, but they usually get the job done. I am super envious of people with sewing machines (and the skills to use them). I just might have to add one to my craft room.
My latest craft project, combining a tie and shirt, exhausted my hand stitching skills. I saw some kid shirts at a local farmer’s market with a fabric applique tie sewed on and that inspired my version of it. There was a bit more sewing than I had anticipated, but I love the results.
The shirt has survived being washed and dried. It is a gift for a friend who luckily knows how to sew a lot better than me and can fix up my stitches as needed. However, I am not sure if she will be a fan of the 80s style tie.
