    My biggest sewing challenge is using very fine fabrics that fray easily, such as organza. I’m a perfectionist in my sewing and am never completely satisfied with the end result when I use these fabrics.

    My biggest sewing challenge is that my sewing table is my dining room table. When I want to sew I need to gather everything that I will need, move it to the table and sew for a bit, then take it all back down again so we can use the table. When I am faced with all that, there’s many a day that I just don’t bother to sew because I’m not up to all the moving. :(

    My biggest sewing challenge is very stretchy materials. It’s so hard to sew them without either stretching them or losing the stretch.

    My biggest sewing challenge is allowing myself time to sew. I tend to put everyone else’s needs & wants ahead of mine bit this is going to be my year to say, “Sorry, I have plans at that time.” My plans are to sew!

    My biggest sewing challenge is is finishing one project before starting another. Sometimes if I get frustrated with how something is turning out, I set it aside and start something different. Unfortunately, I don’t always go back to finish the one I put aside.

    My biggest challenge in my sewing abilities is being confident in fit, but I know if I take the time to make a muslin it will help. With that said, time is probably my greatest challenge. The ideas for new projects come way faster than I can sew .

    My biggest sewing challenge is I need to pace myself & take more breaks while I sew. I just get so excited about the project that I don’t want to stop. Then I pay the price for it. Being old with a bad back sucks.

    My biggest sewing challenge is making sure a pattern fits. Not all 18” American Girl dolls are the same size. Today’s patterns are for newer, slimmer dolls. The dolls I sew for are older, and they have larger waists and hips. On some, more difficult, patterns I’ve even made muslins.

    I’m just getting started in dolls, so my biggest challenge is wrapping my head around new techniques to work in tiny spaces (small sleeve caps/tiny ribbing cuffs etc) that are more professional looking in doll clothing.

    My biggest sewing challenge is sourcing fabric, because I wind up feeling a bit overwhelmed by the choices and I’m not going to stores in person right now.

    My biggest sewing challenge is finding the time to sew. I need to slow down and make time for sewing as I have found it very relaxing. I have missed this in the past few years.

    My biggest sewing challenge is distractibility. If something isn’t finished in one sitting, it may enter the universe of UFO’s, driven out of mind by another project or a glimpse of a neighbor’s cat. I’d never get anything done if there were squirrels in range.

    My biggest sewing challenge is I’m getting older. It’s not as easy to see what I’m doing, and I have tremors on top of that. Enjoy it all while you’re young, being old comes faster than you think.
